Good Deeds and Torah

Sometime around Passover, I read one of those Ethics of our Fathers sayings completely by accident (I’m sure it was just on a website I was reading). Anyway, it went something like this:

“He who has Torah but not good deeds doesn’t even have Torah.”

Yikes. It’s just a shorter way of saying what James says about faith without works being dead, and it reminds me too of Yeshua (Jesus) saying that those who have not will have even that which they do have taken from them. I consider myself warned.
