Put into practice the righteousness you read about in Scripture.
Shalom, and happy morning to you. People have a tendency to hear the word of Elohim and do nothing about it. Some even seek advice concerning a certain matter, but when Scripture is quoted, plainly explaining what they are required to do, they are suddenly too weak to act and instead continue on the broad avenue of sin that leads to destruction.
Too often we fail to put into practice what we read in the Scriptures, down to the seemingly simplest of instructions. The problem is, anything we practice frequently tends to become part of our habit, and we thereafter do those things instinctually. This is why some find it easy to lie, or break the sabbath without a moment’s thought. But cultivating righteousness and putting into practice the things that Yah commands will soon become our life-preserving habits. On this point, the emissary James writes:
22 But don’t just listen to Elohim’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. 23 For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. 24 You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. 25 But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don't forget what you heard, then Elohim will bless you for doing it.
—James 1:22 – 25
