1 Corinthians 1:18
Things take on different meanings depending on how you look at them. The apostle Paul couldn't see the cross as a bad thing because of what it did for us. Like a mother doesn't remember the pain of her child's birth but focuses on the joy of her children, Jesus doesn't want us to focus on the despair that is often associated with the cross.
As it turns out, Bible reflection or mediation is the key to a successful life. James explains what this means and how to do it.
James explains what it takes to become a powerful person who can handle all the things he talks about in the first 18 verses of chapter 1. Now he pauses to give us the opportunity to opt in- to turn over control of our lives to God so that He can lead us into the life He designed us to live.
