Today we continue our new series on the book of James. This covers the book of James, a letter that serves as a how-to manual for the Christian life. When we deal with trials, contentions, and lack of faith, James teaches us that we can still have joy in the midst of our circumstances. The foundation of the book is the importance of faith; faith or the lack thereof can determine the direction of one’s life.
Today, we see the second of James' test to see our authentic our faith really is. Last week we looked at how well we controlled our tongues, this we look how well we control our wealth. How we handle our money is a pretty indicator of our faithfulness.
