11 Brothers and sisters, don’t say evil things about each other. Whoever insults or criticizes a brother or sister insults and criticizes the Law. If you find fault with the Law, you are not a doer of the Law but a judge over it. 12 There is only one lawgiver and judge, and he is able to save and to destroy. But you who judge your neighbor, who are you? 13 Pay attention, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such-and-such a town. We will stay there a year, buying and selling, and making a profit.” 14 You don’t really know about tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for only a short while before it vanishes. 15 Here’s what you ought to say: “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” 16 But now you boast and brag, and all such boasting is evil. 17 It is a sin when someone knows the right thing to do and doesn’t do it. (James 4:11-17, CEB)
It is sin when we know the right thing to do and don’t do it.
We should love our siblings and not insult them. As we approached the election this past November there was all kinds of slander going around from all sides. We are all guilty of this. And who are we to judge another? Only God can truly judge. We should love as God loves us. Accepting us when we are unlovable.
Let us also not say we will be doing in days ahead. We know not when our life will end so we should only plan for what the Lord had planned. Let us live the life the Lord has given and share that love we have received in everything we do.
