In James 5:1-5, the author warns the rich that their wealth will serve against them in a miserable judgment. However, in Matthew 25:14-30, Jesus compares the kingdom of heaven to a man who rewards two of his servants for successfully investing his money and punishes a third servant for not doing the same. Do James 5:1-5 and Matthew 25:14-30 contradict each other? Why or why not?
