Bible Text: James 1:9-12 |


James addresses the inequities between rich and poor. To the poor he writes they have high standing as a child of God. To the rich he writes they need to remember their frailty and the brevity of life. Which are you, rich or poor? From a global perspective, if you make $32,400.00/year you are in the top 1%! Don’t be tricked into thinking your value and self-esteem, and God’s goodness and love to you are somehow connected to how much money you have (or don’t have). If you pass the various tests Christians face, you will receive the crown of God’s approval. The best is yet to come!
