Preparing to stand by

But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. James 1:22

Ever get that strange PC error message “preparing to stand by?”  The Bible is full of challenging information and it’s tempting to spend lots of time trying to understand all it says and try to figure out how it should look in the real world. Maybe it’s time to just get out there and love God and our neighbors, help widows and orphans, admit failures and receive forgiveness.

Lord, it’s time for me to stop preparing to stand by.
