“Faith That Works” James 1:9-11, Pastor Doug Walker

  1. Consider the larger context of chapter one – what topic is James addressing before and after this passage?

  2. How can someone in a humble position also be in a high position (Think about the Beatitudes in Matthew 5)?

  3. Given the context of the passage, what do you think causes a rich person to be humbled?

  4. Why should a rich person take pride in their humiliation?

  5. The riches of this world will certainly fade away, but James says the rich person will fade away (verse 11). What do you think he means by this? (Hint: think about how a rich person’s identity is wrapped up in their wealth)

  6. What is the lesson for both the poor and the rich person?
