Marks of Wisdom
Today's reading: James 3:13-18
By the world's standards, wisdom is typically equated with having knowledge that is academically acquired or gained through life experiences. God's perspective on wisdom, however, goes beyond having acquired knowledge to include our good and godly conduct.
"But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace" (vs. 17-18).
When you think about wisdom and ask God for it, what comes to mind? Are you asking for wisdom as James describes it in James 3:17? Why is peace an important element of godly wisdom? Tami
