Reading: James 1:27
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.

Thought: As we thought about on Sunday when we looked at the Israelites being circumcised by Joshua, our religious rituals and symbols are only worth something if they are backed up by our attitudes and lives. We can talk about love as much as we want, we can sing of our love of God and pray about it too, but if that love doesn’t show itself in how we live all those words are empty.

For this is what I’m glad to do
It’s time to live a life of love that pleases You
And I will give my all to You
Surrender everything I have and follow You

I’ll follow You
