Princess Club: Listening AND Acting

James 1:22-25

New International Version (NIV)
22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

 How often do we do that? Look at ourselves in a mirror and walk away only to forget what we just saw? How many times do with do that with the Bible?
Read a passage, find it encouraging, close the book, walk away...
and forget what we just read!
Probably a lot.

That's what Ana Laura and I talked about this week with the girls.
We need to not only read the Bible, we need to memorize the Bible:
and then obey it!!

We talked about the things we need to remember to obey.
Like not stealing, even if it's just something small or something no one would notice.
Or lying to our parents. 
Or cheating on a test.
Or gossiping about our friends.
We can talk about it, and studying it, and read about in the Bible.
Now it's time to act it out!
Don't just look in the mirror and forget what you see. 
Put it into practice!

Our mirrors will remind us this week about the lesson
