    Faithful in Wisdom

    “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.” James 3:17

    Scripture Focus: James 3:13-18

    The evening primrose is a lovely flower, blooming heartily in most any soil. I encountered one thriving next to the foundation of my friend’s home in Missouri, so I inquired about bringing a few plantings back our home. He firmly warned me not to even consider this because the plant is extremely invasive and could not be contained or destroyed. Oops!

    Quarrels can be like that, too. James says that we want something but don’t get it, so we quarrel and fight instead of asking God to meet the need. Taking matters into our own hands may lead to more conflict. “Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out” (Proverbs 17:14). Our foolishness can spill out like water over a dam or spread like an invasive plant.

    The Spirit of Christ living in us gives us the power to walk the paths of wisdom and righteousness. Let His faithful wisdom take root, grow, and spread.

    Insight: “Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.” (James 3:18)

    grizcty: Sir; We see how God gives

    Proverbs 2

    2 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

    2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;

    3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

    4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

    5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.
    • 6 For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
    7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.

    8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.

    9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.

    10 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;

    11 Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:

    12 To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;

    13 Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;

    14 Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked;

    15 Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:

    16 To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;

    17 Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.

    18 For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.

    19 None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.

    20 That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.

    21 For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.

    22 But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.
