The scripture for today, January 27 (1/27), is James 1:27 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
A lot of people never lie, never cheat, never steal, never murder. Wow! That person deserves to go to heaven! Not! The greatest sin of most people who are “good” is the sin of omission. We don’t do the good things we should be doing. We are basically “good for nothing”.
Do you hear of someone whose relative just died? Do you call them? What about the person who is home sick: Do you send them a card? What about the person who needs a ride to the doctor: Do you give them a ride? What about the mother who sits in church with wiggly children and finally just leaves during the service out of embarrassment: Do you move over and sit with her? What about that children’s home where they would love a card, a gift certificate, a gift?
Oh, Lord God. I never thought. I have been heedless to their silent cries. I have traveled on the other side of the road from them so my perfect life is not interrupted. Lord, can you forgive me? Open my blind eyes, my deaf ears, my hard heart.
