Regretting Being So Shallow

But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.  Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.  James, Chapter 4, verses 16-17.

This passage makes me sad because I know I have been guilty of this more times than I would like to mention.  I was teaching in a suburb of a larger city with more affluent families.  A friend who teaches there asked me to go to the city with her to read with some “inner city” kids after school.  Instead, I chose to co-sponsor the Art Club, doing projects with those more affluent.  I regret being so shallow.

Because this is an example of how I’ve applied this Bible passage to my life, it doesn't necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the passage.
