Drawing Close to God

The subheading for James 4:1-10 reads, Drawing Close to God.* 

The first paragraph in the section ends, “When you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong–you want only what will give you pleasure (James 4:3).”

To be close to God, I should think and pray about what will bring him pleasure.
