Without finding fault
James 1:5 – If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
Many people think that being a follower of Christ requires full, unfailing faith. They think that having moments of doubt, worry or questions about God, His Word, or their faith makes them less of a ‘good Christian’.
The truth is that God wants us to face those questions and doubts. He understands why we think what we think, and He’s open to us questioning Him. James says here that He gives wisdom generously – not with a check-list or a faith-to-do-list. We can approach Him with confidence, asking for answers and asking for guidance when we’re lacking.Ask Him and keep an open mind, ready to receive the answer He so generously gives.
