Summary Thought
“James is talking to Christians who are not factoring God into the stuff of their lives. God is isolated on Sunday morning for an hour, but, in the business of life He doesn't factor. There's no mention of God. There's no mention of His providence. There's no indication of prayer. There's no humility about what might or might not happen tomorrow. James is indicating a person who is not factoring a very important factor into all of life, God.”

Scripture Text for Sunday Morning

James 4:13–17 (ESV)

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”—  yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.  Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.”  As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.  So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.

Discussion Questions
What is James saying is wrong with the planning of the Christians in vs. 13?

What two reasons does James offer as to why our planning should seek the will of God?

What does it mean that God is Sovereign?

How does the acronym “PAST’ help us as we plan according to God’s will?
