Psalm 109 helps us walk through our emotions and feelings of anger and betrayal and revenge. We learn that while it's okay to voice these feelings, it is not okay to stay there. We must move from anger and revenge to trust in God, learning to let God deal with our problems with other people.
In this sermon (from James 4:13-5:6), I examine James' teaching about pride and selfishness. He teaches that we should serve God from an attitude of total trust, and serve others selflessly.
Trust is sometimes hard to give, especially when the outcome of trusting in something is unknown. For guidance, we'll often turn to a self-help book, or friends, or a religious figure. But Mary, the mother of Jesus, gives us an example of trust. She trusts God and his word completely, even though she is unsure of how things will come to be. We ought to follow her example of trusting God.
A divided mind is incapable of completely trusting God. Selfishness is often at the root of a divided mind. In Luke 12:13-21, Jesus teaches us to trust God, not ourselves, and to be rich toward God instead of accumulating riches for ourselves.
Listen to this sermon to learn how to become rich toward God.
