About two weeks ago, my church kids and I put the puzzle pieces that have unique designs,various colors, and our names on our wall. We were talking about how each individual has different roles and gifts that he or she plays in a church (1Cor. 12) and how we, all together, are the body of Christ, the church.:) We are going to add more puzzles as more kids come to become the parts of the body !
19 My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires. 21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it – he will be blessed in what he does.
James 1:19-25 (NIV)
I want to live the righteous life that You desire, but I am so quick to become angry..
I want to get rid of all the evil and wickedness in me and fill my heart with Your word..
Lord, help me
