August 30, 2020, James 3:13-18; 5:7-11, Post 2 – ISSL Reflections

Let’s go back to the Scriptures for a moment. Here are three translations to consider –

V.
The other day I asked you to consider the two kinds of “wisdom” James speaks of and to note the words or phrases that stand out to you the most.

What captured and held your attention?

gentleness – peaceable — yielding
merciful — peace — patient
suffering — endurance — compassionate

bitterness — envy — selfish
ambition — boastful — disorder
partiality — hypocrisy — grumbling

VI.
Lots of choices. Many images to capture us.

Before you do anything else, reread the passage and stop at the word that draws you.

….. ….. ….. …..

What was it?

Why do you think that held your attention?

If you are not sure why, or even if you are, share the word with God and see what opens for you?
