James Jan Bible Studies- Week 1 - Day 4

You adulterous people,[a] don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us[b]? But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:
“God opposes the proud
    but shows favor to the humble.”[c]


God's way is not the same as the ways of the world. He doesn't want us to focus on pleasures of this world which will never be enough for us. 

God wants us to know that going after material gains and other world pleasures  is not sustainable. We will never get the Peace that  we seek nor his favor therefore it would be prudent to be following along his path for us. 

Dear LORD,
Help me to be centered and focus on you. Let me not be tempted by evil and the ways of this world. AMEN.
