Chapter 8 – What Awaits
James continues his tests of faith in Chapter 5. Now James focuses on money and the believers view of money.
James condemns the people who profess to be Christians, but really worship money. He tells them to look at their hearts once again.
James then looks at the poor who were persecuted by the rich. He tells the poor to be patient during their trials. This too shows where they place their trust.
Wealth can be a blessing or a curse. It simply depends on the persons relationship with God. A right relationship produced blessing whereas a wrong relationship will be a curse.
Are you bless or cursed?
