Don't Fall Into the Trap, Be Fixed
James 5.1-11: How shall we live in these last days? James has painted a picture throughout his letter of such struggles that find their way in the church, which includes favoritism, to dead faith, to trouble with our tongue, to selfishness, to conflicts, to slander and the omission of God in daily living. Today as we turn to chapter 5 the danger of riches and wealth is added again to the picture. We must be on guard that we don’t fall into the trap of the love of money, but instead endure as those focused on God’s will and to grow up unto spiritual maturity until Jesus returns. Let us not fall into the world’s trap, but instead be fixed on Jesus and His mission.
