Book: James

Scripture: James 4:11-5:6

What are the dangers of power and wealth for those who follow Jesus? The world’s values and God’s kingdom values are reversed. He challenges us to prioritize God’s kingdom over worldly possessions and consider the ethical use of our wealth. This is more than wise stewardship, but using wealth as a power for the sake of goodness toward others. This passage informs our society’s questions about wealth and prestige, which applies to our city which is based on those two powerful forces.
