Be Doers of the Word

James 1:22-25 may be some of those “uncomfortable” bible verses for you.  I confess that it makes me uncomfortable.  Every time I read these verses, I get this queasy feeling that I’m not a doer.  We Lutherans seem to be more comfortable studying the Word than doing it at times.
