James 4:1-3 Do you know where your fights and arguments come from? They come from the selfish desires that make war inside you. You want things, but you don’t get them. So you kill and are jealous of others. But you still cannot get what you want. So you argue and fight. You don’t get what you want because you don’t ask God. Or when you ask, you don’t receive anything, because the reason you ask is wrong. You only want to use it for your own pleasure.

So, everything’s going along just fine in your world and in your relationships (which are such a huge part of your world) when all of a sudden, whoompa! A major argument breaks out from nowhere. Where in the blazes did that come from?

It’s just the way it happens, right? So often we don’t see them coming and yet arguments do break out and even if everything else in your world is going along just fine, that one argument completely ruins everything. Am I right, or am I right?

So where did it come from? I mean it must have been bubbling along under the surface for a while, to strike with that sort of ferocity.

James 4:1-3 Do you know where your fights and arguments come from? They come from the selfish desires that make war inside you. You want things, but you don’t get them. So you kill and are jealous of others. But you still cannot get what you want. So you argue and fight. You don’t get what you want because you don’t ask God. Or when you ask, you don’t receive anything, because the reason you ask is wrong. You only want to use it for your own pleasure.

It’s not rocket science is it? Arguments come when we’re like that little boy who wants the red fire truck that the other lad’s playing with. Or that little girl who tears the doll out of the other lass’s hands.

And then we go to mum or dad and ask them to give it to us, because, well we want it!!!

Boys and girls (me included) wake up! We can’t always have our way and often times, giving other people their way, letting them have what they want, fills us with such incredible joy, because it is more blessed to give than to receive. Wake up!

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Jess, they are available as a podcast. Just search for them on whatever Podcast player you use and hopefully you can set them to play continually. 😀

Hi Berni, Hope you and the whole Fresh team are well and doing fine. I listen to your Fresh devotional every day when I drive to work as it’s the best time for me to be alone for a good 45 minutes. I enjoy each and every one of them Berni, they are very enlightening and make me face the day in a positive way. Just wondering if there is a way that I can listen to them continuously one after the other without tapping the next and then play buttons? It’s illegal for us to use our mobile phones while driving and I personally think it’s not safe. I hope there is a way. Thank you so much for all your work together with the whole Fresh team! More power and God bless.
