I get James.
He believed in and taught an all-in, get your hands dirty, love lavishly, give generously, serve sacrificially kind of faith. None of which, by the way, result in salvation but result from salvation.
We can’t just serve when it suits us. Care when it’s convenient. Love when it makes us look good.
Lord, may our lives be marked by acts of mercy and love for our neighbor. Let there be evidence in our actions of our faith in you.
