James Weeks 31-34
Friends, today we are happy to share the materials for the second half of James Chapter 3 from the Taste and See Challenge. Before we begin memorizing each verse, let's take a moment to drink deep from the well with verses ten through sixteen.
James 3:10-16 (ESV)
From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring pour forth from the same opening both fresh and salt water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, bear olives, or a grapevine produce figs? Neither can a salt pond yield fresh water.
Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.
