Be Wise. Get Knowledge. Show Forth Good Conversation With Meekness of Wisdom. Show No Envy. Give Forth No Strife. The World’s Wisdom is Earthly; Don’t Rely On It. The World’s Wisdom Is Sensual; Don’t Utilize It. The World’s Wisdom in Devilish; Don’t Count On It. Evil Conversation and Conduct Produce Every Evil Work. God’s Wisdom Produces Purity; Use It. God’s Wisdom Produces Peace; Utilize It. God’s Wisdom is Gentle; Depend On It. God’s Wisdom is Easy to Be Intreated; Count On It. God’s Wisdom is Full of Mercy and Good Fruits; Let It Flow. God’s Wisdom is Without Partiality; You Can Bank On It. You Can Use God’s Wisdom; It’s Without Hypocrisy. Sow the Fruit of Righteousness in Peace.
“If you are wise and understand God's ways, live a life of steady goodness so that only good deeds will pour forth. And if you don't brag about the good you do, then you will be truly wise! But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your hearts, don't brag about being wise. That is the worst kind of lie. For jealousy and selfishness are not God's kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and motivated by the Devil. For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and every kind of evil. But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no partiality and is always sincere. And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of goodness.” (Jas. 3:13-18 NLT)
“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” (Jas. 1:5)
God’s wisdom is so accessible! It’s so available! The wisdom of this world is so “self-centered”. God’s wisdom is so central to God Himself!
All of us can, overnight, become a “channel” for the “wisdom of God”. “I am the vine. Ye are the branches!”, God says. Without God, we can’t do anything right! When God flows through us, we, automatically, display what God is like. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see “God working”. Then men will not give US the credit for being like we are, they will GLORIFY GOD! When the branch separates itself from the “trunk” of the plant, it, immediately, begins to die. We, within minutes of time, when that happens, become “wood, hay, and stubble” which, easily, burns up! But when God is flowing through us, men identify fruits that belong to God. Virtues, like “compassion”, “true love”, “contentment”, are immediately identified by others as being “from God”! That’s when we cause people to magnify the Name of God! That’s when we PLEASE God “all over the place”!
WISDOM FROM GOD IS PRICELESS as we continue our journey through life!
