James 1:21-27 – Mirror, Mirror

James Kallam in his book Glad Tidings tells the story of a young book salesman who approached a farmer and told him, “I have a book I can sell you that will tell you how to farm ten times better than you are farming now.” The farmer thought about it for a few seconds and then responded, “Son, I don’t need that book, I already know how to farm 10 times better than I’m farming now!”

A lot of us are like this farmer, we already know how to do many times better than we are doing now. We read the Bible, but as James tells us in today’s text, we are like a man who looks in the mirror and then goes away and forgets what he looks like. We need to stay in the Word and take the Word to heart, if we want to become doers of the Word and not just hearers only!
