Summary Thought
The primary cure for these ills (materialism) is to use wealth as the Lord prescribes. We must not hoard, for hoarding is wasting. We keep some for proper enjoyment, save sensibly for the future, and give much to the Lord and his work.     
Dan Doriani

Scripture Text for Sunday Morning

James 5:1–6 (ESV)

Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasure in the last days. Behold, the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, are crying out against you, and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts. You have lived on the earth in luxury and in self-indulgence.You have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter. You have condemned and murdered the righteous person. He does not resist you.

Why is the tone of this passage so much more harsh than any other portion of the letter?

What are the main points of James' rebuke to the unrighteous wealthy?

What are the righteous (those following Christ) to learn from this passage?

How can we honor God with our wealth?
