James 1:27 NASB "Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world."I looked down at the shirt I had on and realized I should have put on an apron! Today's Word speaks Truth about what living for Christ is really all about, it's others, not ourselves! I was staining a wood project when I realized that I had more stain on my shirt than on the project. I couldn't help but think of today's verse where it shares that we are to keep ourselves unstained by the world. I needed to change my shirt and it went into the "rag" pile for it was no longer useful - letting the stain of the world fall upon us, can and will make us useless. In order to keep our walk with Christ pure and undefiled, we will have to do things, like visiting the orphans and widows, and stay clean from the filth of the world. The question for today is, do we need to change our shirt?! peace, tom
