James (pt 6) - How to Relate Wisely to Others
Relationship is what it’s all about - love God and love others is what Jesus said! If we’re going to experience the life that we were created for, we need to spend our lives building healthy relationships with others, and with the Lord. Pastor Mike highlights James’ words from chapter 3 verse 17 about living wisely.
If we are wise, we won’t compromise our integrity (James 3:13-15, 3:17; Proverbs 10:9).
If we are wise, we won’t provoke anger in others (James 3:17, Proverbs 20:3).
If we are wise, I won’t minimize the feelings of others (James 3:17, Proverbs 15:4).
If we are wise, we won’t emphasize others’ mistakes (James 3:17, Proverbs 17:9).
If we are wise, we won’t cover up our own weaknesses (James 3:17).
