We tend to believe that we are the God of our life. We make plans and decided where we are going in life, Right? Or do we? What happens when our plans don't turn out to be Gods plans? How do you deal with disappointment? How do you deal with redirection? How do we live today in spite of not knowing what tomorrow will bring? Talk about it with your group. (oh and sorry about the audio, I need a better microphone for the wind)
Where do you find wisdom? James continues with 2 kinds of Wisdom. An authentic wisdom that comes from God and an Earthly wisdom. He then gives us a laundry list of the qualities of each kind of wisdom. But wisdom isn't wisdom unless you put it into action.
What is an Authentic faith? This week we are looking at a passage in James that deals with faith and works. The Apostle Paul says we are saved by faith alone. James tells us faith without works is Dead. Is this a contradiction? Or is it simple addition? DIve in and discuss with your groups.
