Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

“So they come, …and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain” (Ezek 33:31). Hearing and doing are two markedly different activities. God does not want us to be a people who listen to His word and behold His Son, but do not do what He has asked of us. God wants us to listen first, and then to go out and do. He wants us to honor Him with our lips, and also with our hearts. Jesus saw what the Father showed Him, and then went out and did likewise (Jn 5:19-20). We are called to do the same.


Father, help me to honor You with my work. I want to speak of Your glory at all times; but I also want to honor You with my whole heart. I don’t just want to be a hearer; I want to be a doer too!
