The very fact that cross earrings adorn your ears make them reminders to listen to God’s word; however, they’re not designed only to spur you hear, but also to prompt you to act as well. After all, what good is simply listening if it doesn’t affect how you live? The Apostle James said this well:
“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.”
The fact that we need to be told to put what we hear into practice is telling of our need to be reminded to live out our faith. Gold cross earrings are meaningful and elegant ways to call to mind your call to put your faith into practice.
The Small Plain Cross Earrings with Shepherd’s Hook in 14K Gold are the perfect pair for every day, adding a simple but meaningful symbol to your look, no matter what you’re wearing. A pair of gleaming 14K yellow gold crosses, each a little under a half-inch high and a quarter wide, dangle gracefully from shepherd’s hook posts that make this pair a snap to pop in on a moment’s notice.
If you’d prefer a pair that’s a little more ornate but that doesn’t overpower, consider the Small Cross Earrings with Scrollwork Tips in 14K Gold. While these earrings are a bit smaller than the aforementioned plain yellow gold pair, elegant scrollwork on the ends of each arm and decorative lever posts make them stand out.
Gold isn’t your only choice when you’re looking for symbols of faith to adorn your ears. Silver cross earrings can also serve as excellent reminders to listen and put God’s word into action, whether they’re crafted of solid .925 sterling silver or are given gold accents, as is the case with the Sterling Silver and 14K Gold Cross Earrings.
“What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”
Cross earrings are one way to remind yourself to take what you hear and put it into action. Every time you look in the mirror and see one of these pairs, you’ll be prompted to put your faith into practice.
