    I believe that James is in a nutshell the way GOD is telling us how we as TRUE CHRISTIANS should live!!!!!!!

    what James is saying to us don't blame our brothers n sisters for our mistakes, blame our self. if we start to blame our self for our sin, we will be a better person this will help us to love our brothers and sisters.
  • Rebecca
    We have to be steadfast in our faith and in our prayers because in today's world were everything is base on immediate gratification, it is very easy for us to walk away from our prayers without receiving answers. So we have to stand strong without wavering until God's promise comes true in our life.
  • Tasha
