James 4:17 NASB "So for one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, for him it is sin."It sat out there like an eyesore and I kept saying that I will get to it but never did! Today's verse is the Truth straight at us, hitting us right between the eyes, for it speaks of knowing the Truth and not doing it is sin, plain and simple! Each time I walked in my yard, there sat an old park bench that was sadly in need of repair. I wouldn't let anyone sit in it for fear of falling through it. Each year, I said "this is the year to fix it", but sadly the year went by and I never did it! Well this year was the year and after fixing it, it came out great and now is a place to sit and enjoy our yard as we watch our grandsons play. Knowing the right thing to do and not doing it is sin, plain and simple! Sure the bench not getting fixed in a timely fashion isn't sin but I am sure there are areas in our life where knowing the Truth and not doing it is! Let's sit for a while and ask God for the things in our life that need doing, so we don't sin! peace, tom
