    I love the book of James. James is straight and to the point for those of us whom have suffered many severe attacks from the enemy, the book of James is comforting. Just this one scripture: Listen intently swift to hear . Speak what God would have you to say slow to speak , slow to wrath anger solves nothing, it is only a distraction. This little song I have had on my heart all morning. My soul loves JESUS, bless HIS name.

    1 CORINTHIANS 1:10 now I beseech you brethren by the name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement 1 CORINTHIANS 11:1 be you followers of me even as I also am of CHRIST JOHN 8:38 I speak that which I have seen with MY FATHER and you do that which you have seen with your father --8:26-- I have many things to say and to judge of you but HE that sent ME is true and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of HIM ACTS 3:26 unto you first --GOD--having raised up HIS SON JESUS sent HIM to bless you in turning away every one of you from his iniquities

    Praise God for the word of the Lord! The word is the only way to examine the truth about man to the point where even God says "Man hall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceed out of the mouth of God" It is powerful and a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. A wonderful remedy for things that attempt to alter, distort, or pervert us. The book of James is a mirror.
