But the one who looks into the perfect Torah (law), the law that gives freedom, and continues in it, not becoming a hearer who forgets but a doer who acts – he shall be blessed in what he does. (TLV) James 1:25 Nosh: James highlights a principle that is taught throughout Scripture. It is not knowing God’s Word that brings blessing but keeping it. God’s blessing and reward comes upon our daily lives and endeavors when we faithfully practice His Word. That is His promise, and God is a promise keeper.
