James 1:5-10 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and [a]without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a [b]double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

But the [c]brother of humble circumstances is to glory in his high position; 10 and the rich man is to glory in his humiliation, because like [d]flowering grass he will pass away.
