James: Faith that Works: Evil Boasting


Published on

In James 4:13-17, James addresses the topic of future planning. There are two critical errors we can fall into which make our planning offensive to God. One is to presume upon our future health and opportunities. Life can change in an instant, and we need to humbly acknowledge this. Secondly, God is offended when our plans omit Him. In this sermon, we will be challenged to seek God's plan for our lives, not graft God into our plans. We will also deal with the topic of sins of omission, a Catholic concept that Jesus clearly teaches to all Christians.
