10/8/14 Daily Devotion

James 4:9 Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom.

We know that life does not just simply happen. Our lives are lived out as we make choices, they are lived out as we walk forward through each year that passes. What we got out of life is a direct result of the effort we exerted while traveling through, thus we hope to see a positive return on our investment. James is dealing with a group of people who are enjoying life, but not on the side of Godliness. So James, in trying to help understand where theirs are headed, states that they should change their laugher to mourning, because they are headed for an eternal judgment that will not receive a satisfactory judgment, but one that they certainly deserved. What about your life? Are you ready to stand before God in judgment of your life? Are you ready to hear what He says about your life’s agenda, your life’s focus? If the answer is no, change your laughter to mourning, change your joy to grieving, mourning, and wailing, and seek the forgiveness of God.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me take a good look at my life and come to see that which prevents me from being a shining example of You to others.
