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.
