Bible: James 4:1-4

Passions and Pride

4:1 Where do the conflicts and where 1  do the quarrels among you come from? Is it not from this, 2  from your passions that battle inside you? 3  4:2 You desire and you do not have; you murder and envy and you cannot obtain; you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask; 4:3 you ask and do not receive because you ask wrongly, so you can spend it on your passions.

4:4 Adulterers, do you not know that friendship with the world means hostility toward God? 4  So whoever decides to be the world’s friend makes himself God’s enemy.
