First Things First

The very first chapter of the very first document of the New Testament puts two false ideas to rest at once. James chapter 1 refutes the idea that God’s blessing ought to take the form of wealth or comfort. James chapter 1 also refutes the idea that you have displeased God if you do not have these things. Just the opposite might be true. Before even reaching the midpoint of this first chapter, both of these seductive lies are done for.
