April 3 – James 4
LOOK: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”
LISTEN: James makes the case that our problem boils down to selfish pride. When we focus on our own pleasure fulfillment, we neglect God and others. The greatest command is to love God and love people with everything we’ve got. When we love ourselves more than anything else, we reject what God desires most from our lives.
LEARN: Are you loving God and loving people? Has selfish pride become a barrier that keeps you from living the life that God wants from you?
