Title: One More Look
Text: James 4:13-5:6
Look one more time at the mirror of the law, the more to embrace the gospel.
I. Do you make plans? (13-16)
The thin reed of control
II. Do you act on knowledge? (17)
The thin reed of self-righteousness
III. Do you save? (1-6)
The thin reed of wealth
“If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied.” (1 Corinthians 15:19)
So where is your hope?
• Is there really a problem with planning? What do we fall into?
• Do you ever not do what you know to be right? How about what is best?
• How does this passage impact savings and retirement, or does it?
• What is James’ purpose in writing this? Where do you end up?
