Sip slowly because what I’m about to say is hot and I don’t want you to burn your tongue!
In this time of non-political correctness, I’ll say plainly what the loving Apostle could not. Newsflash my brothers and sisters, it’s not always about us, we should shut up and listen and leave our emotions in the car. I know it sounds harsh but it’s the truth. If I didn’t love you I would not have said it!
I would have thought that in all of the time that has passed since the Apostle James penned this epistle that we (the body of Christ) would have gotten our acts together by now. Sadly, we are still quick to speak, slow to listen and we keep our anger on speed dial. When we know better we should do better otherwise it’s called disobedience.
