“Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position.” (James 5:9)
Some people think that God wants all Christians to be rich. However, this verse says that we need to take pride in “humble circumstances.” Why? Because it is often times those who are in the hardest, lowest, situations that will have the greatest reward in heaven.
“God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not —to nullify the things that are,” (I Corinthians 1:28).
“So the last will be first, and the first will be last.” (Matthew 20:16)
