Wisdom from Above

Holy Bible Verse

James 3:13-18 Amplified Bible (AMP)

Wisdom from Above

13 Who among you is wise and intelligent? Let him by his good conduct show his [good] deeds with the gentleness and humility of true wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not be arrogant, and [as a result] be in defiance of the truth. 15 This [superficial] wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly (secular), natural (unspiritual), even demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder [unrest, rebellion] and every evil thing and morally degrading practice. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure [morally and spiritually undefiled], then peace-loving [courteous, considerate], gentle, reasonable [and willing to listen], full of compassion and good fruits. It is unwavering, without [self-righteous] hypocrisy [and self-serving guile]. 18 And the seed whose fruit is righteousness (spiritual maturity) is sown in peace by those who make peace [by actively encouraging goodwill between individuals].

  1. Son hope you are not a legalist

    • Ouch, that’s a strong accusation…But thanks for the warning! ๐Ÿ˜€
      I’m saved by Grace through Faith in our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus the Christ. NOT by my works or anything i can do! It’s all Him!
      I’m being sanctified by the Truth, His word is Truth, and with the power of His might and strength through the Holy Spirit i’m being transformed daily into His image. Which is hopefully crushing any Pride i have and turning it into Humility.

      I share everything on my blog to help encourage and edify Brothers & Sisters in Christ as they live out this Amazing new life we are gifted. Everything here convicts me first and i hope it also convicts others too.

      Thanks again for stopping by…your comment certainly convicted me and made me think if i’m living for self(the flesh) or by the Holy Spirit. Thanks, and God bless you. ๐Ÿ˜€
