James 1:16-21

16 Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. 17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. 18 He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.  19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. 21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.

  1. Every good and perfect thing comes from God. This reminds me that I am not capable of succeeding, or bringing fulfillment in my life. It is humility, and acknowledgement of Him, that lets me believe that He is the source of all good and perfect things.

    He chose me so that I can be an example of what He can create and change.

    I can not do the work of God if I am angry and in my flesh. My human anger/selfishness, does not produce what God wants to seen produced in me.
