James 4:15-16

James 4:15-16 King James Version (KJV)
15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.

16 But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.

James 4:15-16 New Life Version (NLV)

15 What you should say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” 16 But instead you are proud. You talk loud and big about yourselves. All such pride is sin.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

15 We have to know that we live only by the Lord and as believers our lives are meant to be lived for only Him. We have to understand its about what the Lord wants from us and not what we plan but its about us keeping His plans for us.

16 We shouldn’t be bragging or be prideful, pride often times keeps people from the Lord. We only need to brag of Him and for Him. We have nothing to brag about for ourselves.
