How Not To Be A Jerk
Scripture: James 1:19–21
James is likely writing to an audience of Jewish believers in James 1:19-27 that had a strong, moral upbringing but struggled to love their neighbors. It was easy for these believers to look down on their Gentile neighbors and point out the sins of the people that were different than them. James challenges these Jewish believers (and us) to look at our own sins instead (sins like anger and pride) and to confront those sins.
