We all need wisdom from heaven to make relationships work here on earth. James shows us what this wisdom looks like and how we can get it.
James, the half brother of Jesus, wrote to Jewish Christians in the first century who faced intense pressure. They had been dispersed because of persecution, and they faced increasing pressure to let faith live only in their heads instead of being evidenced in their lives. James beckoned these first believers to let these circumstances push them deeper in their journey with Jesus. Today, James invites believers to open their lives to the truth of God's Word and learn how to deal positively with trials and persecution.
