14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
James 2:14-16 KJV
A couple poor as dirt with hungry child:
The husband says, “I’ve faith we’ll get some food.”
The wife replied, “O fool! You’ve got me riled!
Go get a job! We can’t eat attitude!”
Professing faith is easy; say the word,
But if your faith is real then it will show.
A kindness given first was faith that stirred.
When grace meets gratitude you can’t lie low.
When Jesus said “Your faith has made you whole,”
He knew that she believed that by her touch.
If she had not had faith both heart and soul,
She wouldn’t have reached out His cloak to clutch. (Matthew 9:20-22)
Declaring faith won’t keep you warm and filled.
Put action to those words and be fulfilled.
REMEMBER: For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (James 2:26)
