Be You Doers of the Word
“Be You Doers of the Word”
Deut. 8:1-3, 6-10 (17-20, Psalm 65:9-14, James 1:17-18, 21-27, Matthew 6:23-33
The past few weeks I have felt the fragility of life—I have been stabbed, people have simply been brutal to me over nothing, and I have been threatened more then once, and the disaster in New York remind me how fragile life is. We are fragile beings. The Scriptures remind me of that fragility and of God’s promise of his presence, and of his call to “Be you doers of the Word,”, for that is our calling, and that is what sustains us in the midst of that fragility. In my own life I have learn that as long as “Seek first the reign of God,” and put one step before the other in trying to be a doer of the Word—it works out. This Thanksgiving season I give thanks for his presence, his sustenance, in the midst of the fragility of life.
