Flat Tires

Imagine that your car has four flat tires. Will flat tires help your car go down the road? No! The tires need air. You can’t drive with four flat tires. If you want to drive your car, you must fill your tires with air. Also, you can’t drive down the road with only air. You need both tires and air. Why? Because the tires and air work together to allow you to drive your car.
It is the same way with faith and doing good things. Verse 22 of our Bible Reading says, “Do what God’s teaching says; don’t just listen and do nothing. Why? Because when you only sit and listen, you are fooling yourselves.” We must have faith in Jesus and also do good things. Faith and good actions work together. You show people your faith by doing good things.
I hope you have faith in Jesus. How will you show that faith today? Maybe you can fix a meal for a sick person. Or give a ride to a friend. Or maybe you can share some money with a poor person. I encourage you to do good things for God today.
