8/12/14 Daily Devotion

James 1:10 But the one who is rich should take pride in his low position, because he will pass away like a wild flower.

There is nothing wrong with having wealth. There is nothing wrong with having possessions. There is nothing wrong with enjoying a more than comfortable lifestyle. Well, maybe we shouldn’t say nothing. There is only one thing wrong with having wealth, possessions or a more than comfortable lifestyle, and it has to do with our attitude. The manner in which we live correctly, whether with great means or without, is not as important as the attitude we possess as we live. James teaches that those who are wealthy and proud are below those who are of the opposite resolve, even though the world teaches us the exact opposite. In the simplest of explanations, Christians need to be Christian.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me be exactly what I profess, Your follower.
