A Sunday Revelation
I failed to spring forward last night. When I woke up this morning to make the trip to the bathroom I was thinking, great I got my regular six hours of rest. Just then it occurred to me oops you didn’t move the clocks forward before turning in at 1am today.
Oh well, start a pot of coffee after looking in on my wife, who I worry about her not getting enough rest. Before my stepdaughter left yesterday with our grandkids she left a load of clothes to be washed. So I am thinking, for most of yesterday I spent six hours doing four loads that she gave me when I picked up the kids on Friday evening. When the grandkids left yesterday my wife said, the kids love their grandmother. My response was, and they appreciate their step-grandfather.
Getting back to today, I opened my New Testament from the iamsecond store. There in the book of James I discover everything needed in living daily as a Christian.
In James 2: 12-17 and 24-26, faith and deeds together then are necessary.
In James 3: 13-16, how to use the wisdom we are given.
In James 4: 11-12, slander and judging , with my impatience I am guilty by my weakness.
In James 5: 1-6 , James is speaking to rich believers in the Roman Empire. Here I can relate to the struggles of us in todays world. How money and wealth have kept people in poverty and the use of slave laboring. It is written: Now listen you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming to you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look ! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty.
My hope now is that the Dell notebook I am typing on was not produced by slave labors in a third world country. And if it was what should I do?
