Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. ~ James 1:27
Faith isn't about the church buildings or how many bible verses you know by heart. It's how you intentionally apply your love to the people around you that matters.
We serve because of our faith -- not to earn faith. Practice a faith which carries out God's command to love Him first, and then love others.
Religion is man made. Faith is God made. Have you ever been religious but not so faithful?
