Pastor Rick teaches on the five marks of maturity in this verse by verse study through the book of James. He looks at how to be positive under the pressure of problems, how to make wise decisions, how to deal with temptation and how to be blessed by the Bible. He teaches how to treat people right, how to have real faith, how to manage our mouth, how to relate wisely to others and how to avoid arguments. He helps us to understand why it is our nature to judge others and how to break that habit, guides us through the common mistakes we make in facing our future and how to avoid them, and teaches us how to be wise with our wealth. He looks at when, why and how to develop patience, and finally how to pray about our problems.
