James 1:9

9 The brother of humble circumstances should boast in his exaltation;

James 1:9 In-Context

7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.
8 An indecisive man is unstable in all his ways.
9 The brother of humble circumstances should boast in his exaltation;
10 but the one who is rich [should boast] in his humiliation, because he will pass away like a flower of the field.
11 For the sun rises with its scorching heat and dries up the grass; its flower falls off, and its beautiful appearance is destroyed. In the same way, the rich man will wither away while pursuing his activities.
