Bible: James 1:1-10

Salutation

1:1 From James, 1  a slave 2  of God and the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes dispersed abroad. 3  Greetings!

Joy in Trials

1:2 My brothers and sisters, 4  consider it nothing but joy 5  when you fall into all sorts of trials, 1:3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 1:4 And let endurance have its perfect effect, so that you will be perfect and complete, not deficient in anything. 1:5 But if anyone is deficient in wisdom, he should ask God, who gives to all generously and without reprimand, and it will be given to him. 1:6 But he must ask in faith without doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed around by the wind. 1:7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord, 1:8 since he is a double-minded individual, 6  unstable in all his ways.

1:9 Now the believer 7  of humble means 8  should take pride 9  in his high position. 10  1:10 But the rich person’s pride should be in his humiliation, because he will pass away like a wildflower in the meadow. 11
