                            Doer's

    Quite often folks tell me about their Bible reading and some tell me of
    their DEEP Bible study.  I am impressed.  But there seems to be a "fly
    in the ointment."  After all is said and done, there is more said than
    done.

    How can a person read (and study) Hebrews 10:23-27 and not
    understand that it requires doing?  Perhaps I am not supposed to
    understand?  Ephesians 4:32 talks of being kind to one another and
    some refuse to speak.  Numerous passages demand action on our part
    and yet there is only talk.  What is it that we don't understand about
    "doing the Word."

    James says we are to be "doers of the word." (Jas.1:22)  Do you
    suppose that James was conveying what God wants? or do you think
    that hearing (reading and studying) is enough?  Could we be missing the
    point?

    I've been thinking (always dangerous) that it might be better to read
    less and practice more.  What good does it do to read 10 commands
    and obey none. Perhaps it would be better to read one and obey that
    one.  THEN we can move on to another command to read and obey.  
    At the least we would be obedient to what we have read and studied.
