Passage: James 4:13-5:6


At the end of chapter 4 and beginning of chapter 5, James aims to show the insanity of two groups whom society typically regards as wise and together: “the competent” and “the wealthy.”

Sermon Questions
  1. How is your life both fleeting and forgettable?
  2. How has your life shown to be fragile?
  3. Modern society lives its life YOLO. (You Only Live Once) That’s actually a dumb way to live. Instead, we should live our lives YALF. (You Actually Live Forever). How does living your life with an eternal perspective change your focus and your priorities?
  4. Because life is fleeting, fragile and forgettable, don’t put off until tomorrow anything you know you should do today. If you were to die today, what would be undone?
  5. James is saying you live in a way totally disconnected from the people around you and their needs, and particularly when you do things to flaunt your wealth; when the clothes you wear or the bags you carry or the cars you drive and neighborhood you live in are supposed to make a statement about you, you have missed the point. What is God calling you to change in the ways you think about money?
