Reflection: James 3 - 4

Here’s a reflection on James 3:16 – 4:3, the suggested epistle reading for Proper 20 B.  It was written by Anne Osdieck.


Reflection on James 3:16-4:3


And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace

for those who cultivate peace.

The Lord’s directions
for growing a Peace Garden: 


·                     Sow some seeds
                (hardy ones like mercy and forgiveness)


·                     Feed them with love.


·                     Sprinkle them with truth.


·                     Weed them every day.


·                     Give them room to grow.


·                     Wait.


·                     Share the goodness
                  with everyone you know.
