Patience, perseverance and the prayer of faith (James 5:13-16). This is the last installment of the series from the letter of James to the churches.
So be patient, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious crop from his land, being patient with it until it receives the fall and the spring rains.
Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. -James 4:7-8.
[W] isdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. James 3:17-18
What is the hardest beast to tame? Even harder than a rhinoceros? James says no man can tame the tongue. How does such a little thing cause so much trouble?
