Beware. Be Wise.
Today's reading: James 4:1-12
"Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God?" (James 4:4)
We live in a world full of people who don't know God and as a result don't recognize, believe in or follow God's standards and values. But even though we reside in this world, we don't have to live and act like those of the world. Following after God and living according to His standards is a daily choice and undertaking. It takes effort for sure, but when we keep our eyes focused on God and draw fully on the power of the Holy Spirit residing within us, we can live a life that is pleasing to God and in so doing, be a bright and shining light for Him.
