For the people of Japan, their world was rocked. The instant the 8.9 earthquake hit, lives were forever changed. And as the tsunami sped across the country the faith of a nation was tested.

James 1 reminds us that our faith is being tested each day. Will we respond with kindness and love? As we reflect on the devastation, destruction and our distractions let us be reminded to put first things first. What will you put first today?
