James 4:13-17

Today’s Reading: James 4:13-17 (English Standard Version)

13  Come now, you who say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit–14 yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.15 Instead you ought to say, If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.16 As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.17 So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.

Takeaways:

  • Have you ever wondered what tomorrow will bring?  Does that truly affect the way you live today?
  • If I take any time at all to consider myself in the grand scheme of history, I am very insignificant.
  • God desires to use my life in an incredible way for His glory..not for mine.
  • Am I guilty of knowing the right thing to do and not doing it?  Who holds me accountable to doing the right thing?
