James 3:17

“But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others.”


If we were to describe our culture, many of us would not choose the words that we see listed in this verse. Gods Kingdom in many ways is an upside-down kingdom. It is the opposite of the world we see around us. The voice of Jesus or wisdom, is always pure. It is an advocate for peace, so incredibly gently, and models for us a teachable spirit. The bible tells us when we lack wisdom, to ask God. Our lives can be marked by the wisdom and grace of God, and the fruitfulness of that wisdom.


Lord, thank you for your goodness. Wisdom and clarity from you is such a gift. Help me to be a person of peace, always gentle, and to continue to develop a teachable spirit. I am in such great need of you and am so grateful that you want to help me! Amen.
