James 5:1-6

Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.[a] You have condemned and murdered the innocent one, who was not opposing you.

One response to “James 5:1-6

  1. Greed. That is what sticks out to me and the point that I think God is trying to make. Overall, we don’t know when Christ will come and this life will end. But we do know that in the vast measure of eternity, whatever time that we have left is insignificant. We should be sharing, helping, loving, and not hoarding and building up. He invests into us and gives to us so that we can be His hands and feet in the earth.
