Job 8-10, James 3
9With the tongue we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in God’s likeness. 10Blessing and cursing come out of the same mouth. My brothers and sisters, these things should not be this way.
A reminder to show our faith through both deeds and words. ❤️
I love the verse in Job about the hope of the Godless being fragile “like a spider’s web” or like a “plant with its roots wrapped around rocks.” This hope eventually withers and perishes. But when I need hope, I know that I have an eternal source of it who died for me so I could have this hope.
James is so blunt! I never noticed before, but I think that reading the Old Testament with the loftier language paired it provides an even starker contrast. I love the pairings that SheReadsTruth has done through these readings, so powerful. They truly give me new insight and allow my mind to better piece together the Bible as a wholistic narrative.
17 “But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.” God’s wisdom is like no other -ellie
May we pray for this wisdom as Solomon did for surely we will not receive without asking!
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
