Ouch! James doesn’t pull any punches. As a person in the top 2% of wealthiest people in the world, this verse gives me pause. What am I doing with what I’ve been given? Am I being faithful with it? Or am I fattening myself for the day of slaughter? Sometimes I think it’s the latter. There’s still deep rooted selfishness alive and well in my heart and life. Jesus, carve out my shallow heart, please!
