My ’72 Olds Cutlass Supreme

“But prove yourselves doers of the Word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves”

James 1:22 (New American Standard Bible)

When I was a young high schooler with a drivers license and an orange ’72 Oldsmobile, I met a really cute young lady that asked me to drive over to her house to visit. This was before the days of Mapquest and GPS, so she had to explain the directions. Believe me, I didn’t ‘merely’ listen, I got out a pen and paper, getting clarification on every single turn, street name and landmark. I didn’t just hope I would maybe find her house, I HAD TO!

This is how we need to attack God’s Word. When we read the bible, hear a sermon or receive this daily verse, it should make us think; “how can I pull this off?”, “how does this apply to my daily routine?”, “what are the situations that I go through to make this work?”.


Heavenly Father, tap me on the shoulder and remind me of things I have learned as I go through my day. Give me the strength and determination to be a ‘doer of Your Word’. Thank You for the blessings that will follow. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
