Title: Above All
Text: James 5:12-14
I. Above all: Truthful words
Why is simply honesty so important?
II. Above all: Authentic living
Why is living openly so important?
“I will greatly rejoice in the Lord; my soul shall exult in my God,
For he has clothed me with the garments of salvation;
He has covered me with the robe of righteousness…” (Isaiah 61:10)

• What prevents you from being open (bold, even) about openly sharing your struggles, victories, or thoughts?
• How does deception hinder the Christian life? Do you engage in this?
• How might you encourage authenticity in others?
