Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.”
Do not grumble against one another, brothers, so that you may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing at the door.
But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.
Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.
