Being a mature follower of Christ is a massive feat because it involves what we say, what we think, and how we behave. Sure, we can be mature on a good day. But how about a day when we are being tested and tried in ev-ery way possible? James challenged his readers to see through spiritually mature eyes. The believers James was writing to were far away from their homes and the comforts they knew. Some were being persecuted for their faith in Christ. These were difficult days for them, and yet James reminded them of the importance of doing the right thing during the worst days. His direct approach and poignant words still carry so much wisdom for us today as we seek to be people who do more than talk about our faith.
