Today we read the fourth chapter of the letter of James and two chapters of Ezekiel.
James 4. Pride promotes strife but humility edifies when it comes from an active faith. ”Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” Do not judge a brother, that is God’s domain and do not boast about tomorrow, be humble and recognize that God is in control.
Ezekiel 30. Egypt and her allies may look strong, but they will fall. The Lord proclaimed that Pharaoh would fall and the Egyptians be scattered among the nations.
Ezekiel 31, Egypt will be cut down like a great tree.
