I don’t know anyone who doesn’t wonder about how we should live our lives. It isn’t that everyone had no idea at all, it is that we are all looking for ways to live lives that matter.
I am sure if you have the money you can find a guru or a seminar or possibly even a course of classes that will tell you what you need to do. I for one don’t want to spend money on that; fortunately I don’t have to.
The Lectionary has us in James 5 this Sunday and while it is very possible to preach not just a single sermon but indeed a full series on James 5:14, 15* and what God thinks about healing, I found this section to be so much more than just that. In these few sentences I believe that James provides us some direction toward what it means to live the life we were created to live.
Knox Presbyterian How should we live?
St. Mark’s Presbyterian How should we live?
Give these a listen and let me know if I’ve picked up what James is putting down 🙂
*I have not done so but I have heard more sermons on those two verses than I would have ever imagined . . . or requested.
