Are You an Encourager?
Text in Context: Read James 4:1-16
Reflect: Where does this fighting come from? How is James’ prescription an effective cure? How do our actions in the world relate to our submission to God?
Respond: How do you usually respond to the hardships and quarreling around you? How is the word trying to pull you away from God’s prescription for better living?
Prayer: Father, help me to use my words to build up and not tear down. Help me to lovingly help those who are struggling with sin while being open to the help of others in my own life. Amen.
