Acts of Piety or Acts of Mercy?

"Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like." James 1:22-24, The Message.  

As you think about your journey in faith so far, do you tend to prefer acts of mercy or acts of piety? Both are important! Where do you feel most drawn? What is the relationship between the two in your life?
