10/20/14 Daily Devotion

James 5:1 Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you.

James is dealing with people who have a unique mindset. They understand what they should be doing, but they refuse to act upon this understanding. They walk and live as if knowing is enough. Within this attitude, James is trying to help them understand that they should not be filled with joy, that they should not be filled with happiness. Their attitudes should, instead, be that of a person mourning or grieving. What exactly should they be mourning? What exactly should they be grieving? We should be grieving and mourning over our eternal placement. If we are not right with God, we should not be filled with joy, for our incorrect lives are leading us straight to an eternity in Hell.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me discover where I fall short of Your expectations. Help me grieve my sin, so I may become a person that will bring You glory and Honor.
