Pastor Enoch Chee
If you read through the book, you’ll find that James is super aggressive, and he gets in your face. It always feels like he’s yelling at you. We might be tempted to take offense at his tone and just stop reading. However, we need his words because the Christian life is hard. There’s disappointment and suffering and people give up. So, James gives us hard words because he cares about us and he wants us to succeed. I think we will succeed if we learn the lesson he’s trying to teach us.
Today, James’ lesson is about making plans. Great plans. Life changing plans. The kinds of plans that we make for our career and our schooling and our finances and our love life and our family and our retirement. Plans that matter.
