What Causes Evil Work And Confusion Among Us

James 3:16 For where envying and strife[ is], there[ is] confusion and every evil work.

What an indictment! The reason there is confusion and all the evil work is because of all of our jealousy and fussing and fighting. I wonder if we ever realize how much we are at fault for all this confusion. I wonder if it ever crosses our mind that we might be guilty of bringing on evil works even among us!

Tomorrow’s Reading James 4

Don’t ever forget and always remember what God has done!

Esther 9:28 And[ that] these days[ should be] remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city; and[ that] these days of Purim should not fail from among the Jews, nor the memorial of them perish from their seed.

God worked a miracle in the saving of Israel. They were not to forget that day. They were to remember all that God had done and is doing.

Do we take the time to think of all that He has done for us? Do we stop long enough to realize that God has been good to us?

Maybe it would change our attitude if we considered how good God has been, is being and will be tomorrow!
