Practical words

James 4:8 Come near to God and He will come near to you. Wash your hands, O sinners, purify your heart you double-minded

I love the book of James. It could very well be subtitled, “The Practical Issues of this Life .”

James is addressing people in conflict, both with God and each other. These words may seem too stern, and even judgmental. However, James knew that we can not be close to God if we stay in conflict with people.

Father God, may we draw close to you each and every day and may we act in love and with mercy according to your will and through your grace.  Amen
