James 1:27 (NIV)

Let us put aside our petty arguments about religion and practice the kind that God accepts.

Then he climbed into the boat, and the wind stopped. They were totally amazed, for they still didn’t understand the significance of the miracle of the loaves. Their hearts were too hard to take it in.

1 John 5:9 (NLT)
