Take a picture…it will last longer!
Have you ever caught someone looking at you, and then for a moment you wanted to respond like you did as a kid: “Take a picture. It will last longer!” Ha.
According to James, a mirror, while giving us a snapshot, might be too quick for us to see what we need to see. If we’re not careful, t’s too easy to forget what we really look like from God’s vantage point
The next time your grab your Bible, don’t read and run. Take some time to really soak it up. You don’t want to be the “fool” described by Jesus’ half-brother.
“Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like.” (James 1:22-24 MSG)
