James 1:1-11 (from memory)

29 Apr

James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes in the dispersion: Greetings.

Count it all joy, my brothers, whenever you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. That person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; He is double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, and the rich boast in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass, he will pass away. For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beauty perishes. So also will the rich man fade away in the midst of his pursuits.

I know 11 verses isn’t much, but I just had to share what I already have accomplished in hopes that it will encourage someone today. I just love this portion of James!
