It is Tuesday, which means it is a weird day. Have you ever thought about Tuesday before. We are in the middle of the beginning of the week. I hope you guys have a great Tuesday. I hope you guys are being bold today. I hope that you guys are making the name of Jesus famous today. I hope you guys are keeping the family name honored today.
Scripture: Read with me James 1 today.
Observation: What is the primary meaning of this passage written by James? What does this passage teach us about who God is? What does the passage teach us about who we are? What does this passage teach us about what God has done? Make sure we notice that we will all face trials in our life. Make sure we notice that we will all face temptations in our life. Make sure we notice that perseverance through these trials and temptations bring us pure joy. Make sure we notice that we need wisdom. Make sure we notice where our good gifts come from. Make sure we notice the importance of having a tame tongue.
Application: Focus on making it personal. What does this passage mean for you at this specific moment in your life? Are you praying for wisdom from God? Are you pursuing truth, or are you pursuing earthly possessions? How is your tongue? Is your tongue tame?
Pray: Take some time and pray for your friends. Take some time and pray for those friends that you know do not believe in Jesus. Take some time and pray for your teachers today, they may or may not have a relationship with Jesus. Take some time and pray for your acquaintances today, people you might barely know.
