22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom and continues in it – not forgetting what they have heard but doing it – they will be blessed in what they do.
26 Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. 27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
This week's questions for reflection are:
- Do you find yourself at times having to check the tendency to try and achieve God’s work in your own strength?
- Do you sense the voice of the Spirit calling you to some form of justice-making? How might you respond?
- Where will you put your Möbius strip as a reminder to you of God’s call to live an ‘undivided life’?
