Wars have happened for many years. In the Old Testament we learn that the Israelites fought wars against God?s enemies. Wars are still happening in the world today.
But most of the wars today are not fought because of good things. James 4:1b-2 tells us that many wars come from selfishness. ?Your fights and arguments 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 other people. But you still cannot get what you want. So you argue and fight.?
Sometimes we are selfish. And our selfishness often leads us to do wrong things. God does not want us to be selfish. He wants us to be humble. If we are humble, we will not be selfish. Then there will be fewer wars and arguments.
Think about your life today. Ask God to help you be humble. Do what God wants you to do instead of what you want. Do kind things for your family members and your friends.
