3-Steps to Blessing … How to Gaze Into the Word

“But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.” James 1:25 (ESV)

He was so excited when it arrived. The next morning, he sprayed the stuff on the mirror and took a shower. The shower was maybe three steps away from the mirror above the sink. He was so disappointed that morning. The fog-buster didn’t work!

I made it worse when I laughed.
