Praying from James 2:16 relating to Compassion, Action, Hypocrisy.
Dear Lord, help us to be mindful of those in need around us. May we not just offer empty words of comfort, but also provide tangible help to those who are hungry, cold, or lacking basic necessities. Give us the compassion and generosity to share what we have with others, so that we may truly be your hands and feet in this world. Amen.
Verse: and one of you tells them, “Go in peace. Be warmed and filled;” yet you didn’t give them the things the body needs, what good is it?
This is a Command. The verse is commanding the reader to not just offer empty words of comfort to those in need, but to also provide tangible help and support.
