Scripture Time

James 5:1-6

1 Look here, you rich people: Weep and groan with anguish because of all the terrible troubles ahead of you. 2 Your wealth is rotting away, and your fine clothes are moth-eaten rags. 3 Your gold and silver have become worthless. The very wealth you were counting on will eat away your flesh like fire. This treasure you have accumulated will stand as evidence against you on the day of judgment. 4 For listen! Hear the cries of the field workers whom you have cheated of their pay. The wages you held back cry out against you. The cries of those who harvest your fields have reached the ears of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.
5 You have spent your years on earth in luxury, satisfying your every desire. You have fattened yourselves for the day of slaughter. 6 You have condemned and killed innocent people,[
a] who do not resist you.[b]

The "rich people" have put their trust in their money instead of in God. I know I've struggled w/ this from time to time. More than I should probably. I know the things of this earth will pass away and I need to be living according to God's will, but I'm not perfect and still struggle. Praise the Lord that I'm forgiven, that he made the ultimate sacrifice for me.

Father~ Thank you for sending your one and only son to die for our sins and save us. If we are living like the rich help us to repent and turn to you and your word for the right way to live. In your name Amen.
