In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. James 2:17

“You can live opposite of what you profess, but you cannot live opposite of what you believe.”

Dallas Willard as cited in Sarafina by Jenna Marasco (Baesic, 2011) 79.

Our actions reveal what we believe.

If we store up treasures on earth, we show our trust is in ourselves rather than God. If we give generously as a conduit of blessing, we reveal our dependence on God to supply.

What do your actions demonstrate?
