Faith In Action-Killing the Poor?

James 5:6

 Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.

We won’t tarry long with today’s devotional, as we seem to be wrapping up James’ description of the wicked rich he has been addressing.

It does seem, somewhat, to be a final nail in the coffin of the description of the downward spiral of these men James is speaking to.

Were these folks literally killing the righteous poor? It doesn’t seem to be necessarily a literal description of murder being committed here. But in light of what we have studied so far it seems to indicate a heart condition for sure. Let us recap some.

  1. Very good question Wally asked: “f Jesus walked in our home or office and asked to see our financial books, what would we feel? Would we just open them up for view or would we feel a need to hide them?” I think the more we live in light of the second coming the more we would live differently…and spend differently too.
