A young boy, on an errand for his mother, had just bought a dozen eggs. As he walked out of the store, he tripped and dropped the sack, breaking every egg he had bought. The sidewalk was a mess, and the little boy tried not to cry.


A few people gathered to see if he was okay and to tell him how sorry they were.

In the midst of all the “I’m sorry”s and everyone making sure the boy was okay, one man handed the boy a quarter. Then he turned to the group and said, “I care 25 cents worth. How much do the rest of you care?”

That little story has a strong parallel to many people today, doesn’t it?

The Bible says that faith is of the utmost importance. But faith itself is only proven when there are works behind it— like giving of your time, your money, … even your very life to Christ.

So instead of just giving Jesus “lip service”, give Him of your SUBSTANCE. Add substance to your profession of faith. Or, as the old saying goes, “Put yer money where yer mouth is!”

As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead. – James 2:26
