Words and Deeds

(There is so much we can do. If we let God’s love penetrate into the depth of our hearts, He will show us and will enable us to love in bold ways… one person and one hurt at at time.)

We  talked for hours

And blogged for days.

We read the books,

Researched and prayed.


We asked for wisdom

Looked for a cure

We prayed some more,

Thought our motives were pure.


Still the homeless are cold

And orphans die.

The old are lonely

And the fatherless cry.


Our words are futile

If deeds don’t come.

The Gospel speaks loud

When we start with one.


What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

James 2:14-16
