Wisdom is…
July 20, 2017 by Relevant Community

Untitled design (4)

 

“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.” (James 3:17-18)

 

Wisdom from God is different than you might think…and we have the opportunity to show it in every interaction we have and decision we make.

 

Real wisdom is…

Pure.

Peace-giving.

Considerate.

Submissive to God and others.

Merciful.

 

This week, consider every interaction or decision an opportunity to practice real wisdom.

 

Ask yourself:

 

Is my heart PURE in this interaction or decision?

Is this about what God wants and what’s best for you? Or is this about me?

 

Am I bringing PEACE in this interaction or decision?

  • Peace between me and God?
  • Helping lead someone else toward peace with God?
  • Peace in relationships?

Am I CONSIDERING what God wants, and SUBMITTING to His will first?

 

Am I CONSIDERING the other people I’m interacting with, and SUBMITTING to what’s best for them?

 

Is this interaction or decision filled with MERCY or judgment? 

 

Wisdom. Ask for it. Then show it through how you live and act.

 

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. (James 3:13)
