"Thanksgiving – an extra long weekend for some, but hopefully for you it is a time to stop and take account of God’s blessings in your life…and how He has carried you through life’s trials or how He has magnificently provided for you at a time when many are struggling.
A harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
James 3:18
James, the brother of Jesus, wrote to Christians who were having trouble in their personal lives and in their church fellowship. There were difficult testing, temptations to sin, unhealthy competition, and stumbling in the proper use of how they spoke to each other. Sound familiar? James insists that their actions must be living proof of their spiritual maturity.

Vibrant faith adopts God’s peaceable wisdom rather than the contentious wisdom of the world. The worldly wise – motivated by selfish ambition and consumed by envy and jealousy – are arrogant, bitter and self-centered. But the maturing believer exhibits godly behavior. It is first pure, then “peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.” (James 3:17)

Let your righteous conduct sow peace. Your harvest will be not just the absence of uneasiness in this country, but an atmosphere that is positive – one of contentment as well as security."
