Word: Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. James 3:13
Thought: It is very important for us to discern that our wisdom is from God or from the world. We could discern as James explains by the way in we tend to demonstrate the wisdom – is it with the humility of the heart with all meekness or with bitter envy and strive. We deceive ourselves by saying we are diplomatic and we should handle politically, but the wisdom from above is not to be diplomatic or political, because it is pure wisdom and will always pursue what is truth with all humility and our thoughts, words and deeds should be in accordance to it. As Jesus grew in wisdom and when He was in the middle of the elders in the church, He demonstrated the wisdom with humility and yet people admired Him. Have we tried to get the wisdom, knowledge and understanding from above and able to go to the place which God has placed us and demonstrate the wisdom in purity with all humility – let us always see for ourselves and not be deceived that we are going with the wisdom from above. Let us ask and receive the wisdom from God “”If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him”. Let us not try to gain our wisdom from the gurus of the world, but from the pure word of God which gives us the wisdom which no one could fathom.
Prayer: Dear Lord, please grant us the wisdom from above and let us not be crowded with the wisdom of the world and let people around us experience the meekness of our wisdom. Amen.
