A daily devotional through the Bible speaking with God as Adam and Eve may have in the garden east of Eden. Our website


James hits the nail on the head. The problem with humanity is selfishness. You don’t get what you want and war erupts within you. Then often it explodes in your behavior. Sometimes it even goes global with national policies and global alliances. You are selfish by nature. That’s the problem with every individual, every group, every town, every nation. You want to gratify your wants and don’t care what it might cost others. Envy and jealousy are your hallmarks.

Failure to align with God, though, means declaring war against Him. You can’t live on the fence. You are either fully for God, or fully against Him. There is no middle ground with Him. It just doesn’t work. You see, He is a jealous God. Yes, He wants His way. But His way is good. It is the best thing for you. He knows it is because He is God. He created you and all there is. He will judge you at the end of time. There will be no jury of your peers, because they have also sinned. Only God is holy. So He alone will judge you.
