James 1:23: “To listen to the word and not obey it is like looking at your own features in a mirror and then, after a quick look, going off and immediately forgetting what you look like.” 

Luke 15:19: An excerpt from the story of the Prodigal son. “Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I no longer deserve to be called your son, treat me as one of your paid servants.”
