James 1:19-27 Speaks of hearing and then doing, putting our faith in action and that pure religion is to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction.
Its rare that anyone gets the chance to visit those is such great need in another country. Through Food For the Hungry I was able to see the good work this ministry is doing not just in Nicaragua but through out the world. DRIVEN11 fully supports the good work they are doing. See my most recent trip to Nicaragua below and consider putting your faith in action by sponsoring a child today by emailing Driven11Music@gmail.com with the subject “I want to sponsor a child”. Thank you for putting your faith in action.
Hearing and Doing
19Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 21Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 22But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
26If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
