James 4:1-10 – HANDLING DISCONTENT
We live in a world that is primarily full with discontented people. Even in church, there are many discontented people. We are discontented with our friends, our enemies, our jobs, our churches, our finances, our families etc.
As our text shows, the problem of discontent is not new. The church in James’ day also faced it. James addresses discontent in our text.
