Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, and the rich in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass he will pass away. For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beauty perishes. So also will the rich man fade away in the midst of his pursuits.—James 1:9-11
There's not a man alive who doesn't fancy the boast of being rich. But James says the rich man isn't rich forever, but only a season. It's a humiliation that awaits the rich because, like the flower's beauty, he has a passing and perishing. He will fall and fade. But not the low man—he takes time to boast because his boasting is in the Lord, not some temporal pursuit.
