Read James 5:7-10


Read James 5:7-10

Be patient, therefore, beloved,b until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. You also must be patient. Strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near.c Beloved,d do not grumble against one another, so that you may not be judged. See, the Judge is standing at the doors! 10 As an example of suffering and patience, beloved,e take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. [1]

Think

Yesterday we read from Isaiah; someone who spoke of hope in the midst of darkness.  James encourages us to continue to be patient.  Confident that God will do what God has promised.

Pray

The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains.”
Lord, you have planted the seed of your word in me.  Water it with the rain of your Holy Spirit, so that I may grow into your likeness.
Amen.
