Irreconcilable Differences (James 2:1-10, 14-17)

In a culture that tells us to pile up as much stuff as we can, it’s difficult not to cling—to our possessions, to our longing for success, to our relentless need for respectability. But following Jesus is about letting go of those things and traveling down another path—a path that leads us through all the wrong neighborhoods, populated by all the wrong people, occupying themselves with all the wrong things, things that we’ve been taught are pointless (at best) or ruinous (at worst)—a path that is irreconcilably at odds with the available paths offered by a consumerist culture.

And that path—even though it appears to lead us through all the places our culture has told us to avoid—according to Jesus, and usually without our knowing it, is the path that leads us home.
