Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with
meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
Humility is at the core of Christianity. Our sinful nature rebels against rules, regulations, and commands. We want to do what we want to do, and we don’t want anyone interfering with our wants and needs. However, James calls us to submit to the authority of scripture, which calls us to much greater desires. Today, evaluate what it means to have filthiness and rampant wickedness in your life—do you let the world seep in you and out of you? Pray that the Lord root in your heart his word and his commands.
