“What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to him, ‘Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,’ and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself.” — James 2:14-7, New American Standard Bible
“Pick yourself back up” sounds nice in theory, but I question the phrase’s application. Oh, I understand the concept. I would like to think I’m capable of picking myself back up again. Many times I’m not.
