Today's Verse : James 1:27

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. — James 1:27

Thought

Yesterday James reminded us how important our "talk" is. Today he reminds us about our walk. True religion is not all talk. We must live and love as Christ did. Caring for widows, orphans, and others that are forgotten and overlooked while we are keeping ourselves holy to God is what "Christ living" is all about.

Prayer

Loving God, give me eyes to see the people that need your blessing. Please lead me to the folks in our church, our neighborhood, and our work or school that feel forgotten and overlooked. Help me to not only see them, but to include them so they can know the love that you have for them! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
