13 For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. ~Romans 2:13
Paul is pointing out that KNOWING something and DOING something are two very different things. There are a lot of people who know a lot about the Bible, go to church, and maybe even serve on a committee who don’t show their Christianity in their works. Some of the meanest-spirited people are Christians. But Paul said it’s not enough to know the right things, we must DO the right things.
Prayer: God, forgive me for when I am a hypocrite. I know what to do, but I don’t do it. May I not have faith in my knowledge of you, but to put into practice what I’ve learned from you. Amen.
