STAY HUMBLE James 1: 9-11
THE WORD OF GOD
James 1: 9-11
9. Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position.
10. But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower.
11. For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business.
REFLECTIONS ON THE WORD
Here James is speaking concerning the poor, and rich believers. He is saying believers in low positions, who are poor, ought to actually rejoice in their new life in Christ, rather than fall into despair, because low position, means high position in GOD. He is talking about humility that the believers in humble positions receive, and as far as the rich, pride, and humiliation comes along with the package. You rich- do not be so prideful in your possessions, because all you own and have, can be taken away, and pass away like the wild flower. And to the poor, rejoice for the LORD himself will exalt you, for even if you do not have much wealth, you are rich in Christ beyond measure.
The Rich man needs to take pride in humbling himself as a Christian, realizing that he too will fade away.
Everything of material value will corrode, and be destroyed, only your soul will live forever.
Have u thought about your soul?
It is very precious to Christ. Accept him in your life, and you shall live forever.
