James: Faith Without Works Is Dead - Part 10
Americans have always been a forward-looking people. Sometimes it feels that we are obsessed with the future. As followers of Jesus, what should be our viewpoint toward the future? How should do we look forward to things ahead? It’s not wrong or sinful to plan. The Bible talks a lot about planning. It’s not even wrong or sinful to strive for the greatest possible achievement. The Bible doesn’t condemn making a profit. What tears us from Christ-centered priorities is not looking to God for our path, but again, looking to ourselves for the wisdom of where we should go. Today’s scripture reminds us that without Godly wisdom from His Word, the Spirit, and others, our plans are useless and hopeless.
