Hope for today: wisdom from heaven

Hope

13 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. 14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

17 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. 18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
James 3:13-18

  1. Great writing here! Bigger houses, fancier cars, competition for private schools seems to begin first grade, not to mention what the media sells and tells us we should have in terms of our outer appearance! Sometimes I walk into a mall store just to look at the prices of things! Jeans for more than $100.00 because of a label? In our hurting world today, we or at least I want to memorize verse 18! I love the Book of James. He was a man of God who, in his writing, had the ability to get right to his point! As did all the writer’s but to me, James is very younique! Thank you for sharing your walk of faith and spiritual encouragement !
