James 3:13-18 ~ NIV
Two Kinds of Wisdom
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. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. 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.
One of my professors said once that wisdom is the correct application of knowledge. The world gives us a lot of information that fill our heads with knowledge. How often do we take the time to prayerfully sit before the Lord and ask Him to give us His wisdom on matters in our lives? There is a way that seems right unto man, but the end can be destruction. We need God's wisdom in all things. Today be reminded that He wants us to pray about everything...nothing is too small to bring before our Lord who loves us so!
