Genuine Following

Today's reading: James 1:27

In the final verse of James 1, James tells us that "pure and genuine religion"--believing in Christ and wholeheartedly following God's instructions and laws (not man-made rules and laws)--is evidenced by helping those in need around us and standing firm on God's Word as we live and navigate life in a sin-filled world.

"Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you" (James 1:27, NLT).

"Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world" (James 1:27, ESV).

What does James 1:27 convey about God expecting us to act differently than the world we live in? How active are you when it comes to offering care, support and/or help to people in your neighborhood, community, school, church and family? When we reach out to and walk alongside people in need, what message are we sending to the world? Tami
