Hearing and Doing

Hang upon the words of Jesus in this concluding chapter of “The Sermon on the Mount.” Various brief instructions are arranged one after another. Receive each of them as precious gems of Jesus’ wisdom which he lovingly shares with you, his disciple. Each comes from the inmost center of Jesus; will you receive them at that same point within yourself?

The concluding six verses present an image developed in the letter of James, reminding us not only to be hearers of the word, but doers as well. As you look upon the movement of your life and learn from Jesus’ words, what action is called for? You might miss this, if your reading is hasty—a hearing only.

Amid the declarations that Jesus makes, three questions are interposed. Feel the questions first, then respond from the depths of your spirit.
