Memory Verse #4

I've been studying James and doing the Beth Moore Breaking Free Bible study, so I thought I needed to memorize a few verses from James this time. It is a pretty lengthy passage, so I'll probably split it up for the rest of this month and the beginning of next.

James 1:22-26 (NLT)

But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. For if you listen to the word and don’t obey it, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. 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 God will bless you for doing it. If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless.


  1. I really like the book of James, too. And, actually have been looking at this exact scripture, too. (not for memory this time, but looking at it a lot!)
    Here's mine from Philippians for this time. It's a little lengthy, too.
    Have a blessed day!

    If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.

    Philippians 2:1-4NIV

  2. Can I use your Scripture Memory 2011 button?
