James 5:9-11
KJV 9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door. 10 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. 11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.
WEB 9 Don’t grumble, brothers, against one another, so that you won’t be judged. Behold, the judge stands at the door. 10 Take, brothers, for an example of suffering and of patience, the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11 Behold, we call them blessed who endured. You have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the Lord in the outcome, and how the Lord is full of compassion and mercy.


These are my thoughts, please share yours.

9 We should not cause trouble for one another, back talk each but work together. God is to be our judge, while we shouldn’t accept a brother or sister turning to sin we are to walk the fine line of helping them and let God be the one who judges.

10 We will suffer as Christians, this world may hate us because of Him, and we may have them act in their hate. Living for Him and good turns people against us. We have to keep walking and stand strong in Him thru the faith we have.

11 Overcoming thru the Lord brings joy even in times of trials. Him being in control gives us a peace in the midst of chaos. We need to lean and rely and trust Him, submit to His leadership and even the world comes against us we are blessed by His presence, that is the joy he speaks and of and one that the believer can have.
