DAY 8: Give God’s Word a Gaze

James 1:22-25
Be doers of the word, and not hearers only. Otherwise, you are deceiving yourselves James 1:22

Scriptures: Jeremiah 11:6; Matthew 7:24; Luke 6:46; Romans 2:13; James 4:11; Obadiah 1:3

James calls God’s Word a mirror. The mirror helps us evaluate ourselves. Once you look at a mirror, you can decide if you need to make any changes before you leave for the day. The Bible helps us do that, too.

You can look at the Bible in one of two ways. You can glance at the mirror, or you can gaze into it. You don’t just glance at the Word of God in a rushed, hurried manner and then leave. Glancing at God’s Word won’t change your life.
