Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – James 1:8

    Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do. – James 1:8 (NLT)

    I remember a time when I wanted to make my teacher happy, but also wanted to make my friends happy too. I decided to write some bad things about one of the other students on a paper.

    Of course, the teacher found the paper, and realized that I had written it. I got in trouble for doing it. And while I made my friends happy and had them laughing about what I had written, my teacher was disappointed in me.

    I realized that I couldn’t successfully please two groups of people. I couldn’t make both my teacher and my friends happy at the same time.

    That’s a lot like what today’s verse talks about. It shows us that we can’t live our lives and successfully make God and the world happy. It just won’t happen. We can’t live for two things at the same time.

    Trying to do that will make you unstable and unhappy in the long run. So instead of trying to live for two different things, choose instead what you’re going to live for. Will you live for God? Or the things of the world?
