What does it mean to call myself religious? Is religion more about prayer and worship or is it about serving and giving? The book of James is often used to support the case that actions speak louder than words. It’s true that James calls us to take a good hard look in the mirror. What people often overlook is that James does not want us to be ashamed of what we see in that mirror. James wants us to BE the person reflected in that mirror.
