You adulterous people,
don’t you know that friendship with the world
is hatred toward God?
Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world
becomes an enemy of God.
Or do you think Scripture says without reason
that the spirit he caused to live in us
But he gives us more grace.
That is why Scripture says:
“God opposes the proud
but gives grace to the humble.”*
— James 4:4-6
*James, the actual half-brother of Jesus,
is quoting, here from the
Proverbs, chapter 3, verse 34.

Huh? As usual … friendship and love make me feel close to God.
Ok, my interp would be … we love humans, but forgive their flaws, we cannot judge, we can love, and God will watch over us and handle flaws and stupid human tricks 😉
I think this means we should demonstrate love to people, yes, but not to love their ways, if their ways are wrong. If a person is harming himself or others, we should not “get into it” and copy them or go with them, just because we are trying to be kind to them.
Absolutely. Good Mom, and Soul Sister! xo
Love ya! 😀
I love your Sunday Scripture concept, Katharine! Thanks for stopping by my blog…I’d like to follow you by RSS feed, but, I’ll need to figure it out. Blessings on your blogging ministry…
Thanks, Jarm, and welcome to Home’s Cool!
Wow. I didn’t know you would have to figure anything out! Thanks in advance for whatever difficulty that might prove to be.
Can you not just type your email address in the box, top-right? I think that is all it takes. Am I wrong?
I receive tons of email each day, so I would prefer getting it through google groups or RSS feed, so I can have the blog posts all in one place…hey, I think I’ve found it…at the top of this blog, there is a “follow” button…hurrah!!
Well! Welcome aboard! 😉 Hope you enjoy your stay.
