Awaiting The Rich
Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you.—James 5:1
This chapter begins with one sharp condemnation. It feels like a talk down to a disobedient son who has just wronged his father. So let's agree, James does not preach health and wealth, but rather sickness and misery for the rich who oppress God's people.
But let's confess, we've all dreamed of the vanities of wealth. Some of us have intentionally pursued this path both successfully and unsuccessfully. But after reading this, our dreams of vanity might be better off unrealized, for it appears that the rich will soon experience a nightmare that results in weeping and howling. So this year, don't let your vain pursuit of dreams pursue you.
ASK THIS: What are you pursuing?
DO THIS: Make your pursuit holy, and pursue God with all you have, even your money.
PRAY THIS: God, purify my heart and my every pursuit this year.
