A WISER COUNSEL – Tue, Mar 14, 2017

James 5:13 KJV

Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.

How quickly do we prescribe solutions and give counsel to people who are afflicted in one way or the other?

One common counsel I’ve grown to know is asking a troubled/afflicted person to take some alcohol so such a one can forget their woes. The great philosopher offers this same counsel in Proverbs 31:7 🤔…

But James offers a much better approach. He recommends prayer in times of affliction and pain. Drinking your worries away has never proved to be a sustainable solution… you will live to fight another day!

Pray when afflicted, sing when you are merry. This is a wiser counsel than sticking to the ‘green bottle.’ You owe your soul this service and your body this responsibility.
Have a blessed day.
