“In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”
See my post “Comfy and Barefoot in the Kitchen“.
Oh, was that such a pain…going through all of those socks and matching them up. Trudging up and down the stairs. Monotomous. I had better things to do. Demeaning. Honestly…2 hours of my life spent on organizing socks. Really. Come on.
Ladies, don’t we go through this every day of our lives? If it isn’t socks, it’s cooking, going to the grocery store, changing kitty liter, rearing children, ironing,changing diapers…our list is endless. It can get pretty tiring can’t it?
The thing is…as wives and mothers, we can fool ourselves in believing that the world revolves around us. This way of thinking makes us miserable, bitter, not fun to be around, and most importantly disobedient to God.(been there, done that)
So, in my little sock incidence, faith without action would have looked like this:
” Geoff honey, I LOVE you…but I don’t really want to serve you. I know you need socks and again…I LOVE you SO much, but I don’t really feel like doing anything for you in that way. I will do ALL the fun stuff with you and tell everyone how much I LOVE you. But, you my dearest, will be going barefoot.
