James 4:1-3

James 4:1-3 HCSB

What is the source of wars and fights among you? Don’t they come from the cravings that are at war within you?  You desire and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. You do not have because you do not ask.  You ask and don’t receive because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your evil desires.

One response to “James 4:1-3

  1. I am going to work backwards. We dont have because we don’t ask of Him who can give. When we do ask, we ask for the wrong reasons, or for selfish motives, so that we can consume His gifts and favor on our lusts.

    There are conflicts and strife among us, the body, because we are at war with our sinful lusts and cravings within us and these desires and sin manifest themselves externally in our relationships.
