1 Every Thursday I would give you something from the bible and you find a scripture to go with the word. If you want you can write a little bit on what the scripture means to you. Don’t forget to follow mycreatorscreation so you won’t miss out on this challenge.

Today’s Word: Doers
Not many Scriptures came up for the word “Doers.” But if by chance they are many wanting to take part in the challenge, it doesn’t hurt to emphasize this same scripture: “Doers,” over and over again.
When relating to scriptures many of us hear and understand them, but when it comes to acting them out in our daily living, this is when the problem arises. For example we are called to be peacemakers of God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God. Matthew 5:9
So I believe as a peacemaker we are called to pour water on any flames we may see—thus putting out the fire, but instead, in a lot of cases we take part in the very opposite way of living. We tend to pour fuel into the fire.
The scriptures below gives the perfect example of not being “Doers” of the Word of God. Because if we were “Doers” of the Word, we would keep our tongues in check.
The Untamable Tongue
My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment. 2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body. 3 Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body. 4 Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. 5 Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things.
See how great a forest a little fire kindles! 6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature;
Obviously it is no good to have the whole Bible memorized if it is being used for the wrong reasons. We need to be “Doers” of the Word, and not “Hearers” only.
One of the ways we can start living out the scriptures in our lives is to keep our tongues in check, and by doing this small thing, we could put out many flames, thus living more peaceable lives.
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:1-2 NIV God bless!
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell—and great was its fall!” Matthew 7:24-26
