Believers who are poor have something to boast about, for God has honored them. And those who are rich should boast that God has humbled them. They will fade away like a little flower in the field. The hot sun rises and the grass withers; the little flower droops and falls, and its beauty fades away. In the same way, the rich will fade away with all of their achievements.” James 1:9-11 NLT
Whether we are rich or poor (materially or monetarily), we should boast only in one thing: That we know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Together, we are the family of God! We are all rich in Christ. Look forward to the coming kingdom! This life can't compare to what lies ahead. “Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.” Romans 8:18 NLT “These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.” 1 Peter 1:7 NLT Look up child of God. The best lies in front of you!!
