Not what you would expect

“Let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, and the rich in his humiliation, because like a flower of the grass he will pass away.” – James 1.9-10

Instead of calling the poor “oppressed” who need to rise up, they are told to rejoice for they are already elevated. Instead of calling the rich “elite” who need to be brought down, they are told to be humble for they are already brought low.
