We are studying the book of James in our group at church. The scripture for this Wednesday is below. When I took a look at Brenda’s word list, I couldn’t resist. It just fit too well. . . in two sentences even.
Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? 2 You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. 4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
– James 4:1-4
