Scripture quote no. 5

Hello Friend,

This short but, meaningful post is full or love and respect for one another. I give two quotes for you to ponder.

One from William Makepeace Thackery and the other from Scripture from James.

Quotes and Scripnets

 

And, What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him?i. [2:14] Mt 25:31–46; Gal 5:6. If a brother or sister has nothing to wear and has no food for the day, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well,” but you do not give them the necessities of the body, what good is it?j. [2:16] 1 Jn 3:17.So, also faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead. 

Sometimes we think oh sure I will pray for that person. Offer the situation up in prayer and could still do something, but get moody about it. Never makes me feel good.

Need to expand and reach out the way others like it to be. Do a good deed for others. That mind set will give a lot of graces and mercies in return. Not to think about the return I get. Just do the good deed.

The smiles I get and/or the warm feeling inside goes a long way.

  1. Great thoughts, Donna Maria! Love the quote from Thackeray and how you tied it into Scripture! I have found that a simple smile to strangers that I pass on the street or in the store seems to always bring a genuine smile in return. Once, I had a person that I didn’t know tell me that seeing my smile was exactly what he needed that day! And a kind word, especially in a difficult situation… Yes a little can do a lot of good! As Christians, we are an Easter people, after all – we should be spreading joy!
