How does a person change?
James calls on Christians to get rid of the evil in our lives. That happens when we study the Word of God and then commit to LIVING what we learn. We grow when we make a commitment not to be angry about the majority of things in life. Our anger reveals our selfishness: we are not angry at the injustices of the world, but the inconveniences in our own lives. We grow when we make a commitment to make a difference with our lives – helping others, saying a kind word, listening instead of talking. This is the change we all want others to make, and the change God is trying to make in us.
