"BE YE DOERS OF THE WORD"

How emphatically James enjoins us to be "doers of the word." In the first chapter of his epistle we read: "If any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: for he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed."

The glass, or mirror, may be compared to divine Science, wherein we may behold our true selfhood. Man, as the offspiring of God, Spirit, is spiritual, incorporeal, inorganic. He reflects God. Man, as the perfect effect of perfect Mind, cannot manifest anything but perfection.
