Today we discussed James 2:14-17 after watch a clip from Batman Begins. In the movie clip, Bruce Wayne and his friends have just gone swimming in the fountain of a fancy hotel. Bruce runs into his old friend, Rachel and is a little embarrassed. He tells her this isn't really who he is. He's still the same guy he used to be. Rachel tells him that "it's what you do that defines you".
In the verses of James that we read, it says the same thing: faith that doesn't show itself through actions is no faith at all. It's useless.
We talked about how we show our faith through our actions. The youth came up with great ideas including going to church, helping others, being nice and standing up for another kid if they are being bullied.
