James, a bond-servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve tribes who are dispersed abroad: Greetings. James 1:1
This is your life. It is God-given (1 John 5:11) and you will be accountable for what you did with it (Romans 14:12). Life doesn’t have to be complicated, but it does need to be contemplative. So, think about who and what you listen to. Find someone who has a life that works and is working it. James was one of those guys. He was a bondservant of God, sold out, committed to, and living for God. Here’s another thing, James was compassionate, he was writing people in need, desperate and dispersed from the homeland. Real confidence and courage come with compassion. It has good in mind and heart. Know who you’re listening to, where they’re coming from, and what they’re aiming for before you turn your life over to their advice.
