A few weeks ago, I highlighted some popular spiritual phrases that are cheap, pointless, and powerless. Phrases like “follow your heart”, find inner peace, sending positive vibes, adjust your okra… I mean Chakra, etc. These are non-biblical phrases spoken by those who think they’re spiritual but are powerless & useless. But Christians also have phrases that are useless when there’s no action behind them , especially on social media. We use them when we feel like we must at least say something or to soothe our conscience, but we do nothing. "I’ll pray for you” offering to pray for people in crisis without any commitment to help when you know you could. Often, we don’t even really pray! This lack of action makes what could be a good thing worthless. “Its all in God’s hands” saying this to someone in crisis, and then leaving them to suffer alone is cold hearted. Especially if God has put you in a place to be His hands, but we don’t even care enough to even lift a finger. “The Lord works in mysterious ways" 1st , how do you know the hardship they’re suffering is the Lord’s work? Couldn’t it be because of evil in this world? 2nd , what if you’re supposed to be part of the Lord’s mysterious work, the part that provides relief in their suffering, but you don’t want to be bothered. What good are those words to anyone? "God will make a way!" Now you can say this one with passion! It's super religious! But saying it with no intention of trying to be part of the “way’ God might be making, well that’s just nice sounding, useless, cheap talk. God won’t ever give you more than you can’t handle.” For personal reasons this is the worst one. I won’t go into it. If we just speak religious phrases to fellow brothers & sisters, especially those in our church family, but aren’t willing to help in earthly, tangible ways, James says this is an important warning sign about our ropes of faith.
