“So throw all spoiled virtue and cancerous evil in the garbage. In simple humility, let our gardener, God, landscape you with the Word, making a salvation-garden of your life. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear!” James‬ ‭1‬:‭21-22 MSG‬‬

I love the thought of God’s Word actually changing the landscape of my life, shaping me into something that is going to bring life and joy to others, like a beautiful garden does! But we’ve actually got to let God do the work, to allow His Word to transform our thoughts and actions! Lord, help me not to just read or hear Your Word, but to truly listen and act on it! Speak to me as I open the pages, or the App, of my Bible and grow me in faith as I open my heart to You today. Amen 👆🏼🙏🏼
