Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. James 3:13
Where does wisdom come from? And what is the results of wisdom? Many people claim to have wisdom today, especially with social media. Everyone claims to be an expert on everything, but don’t have basic common sense. Its almost the same concept of Faith without Works is dead, Wisdom without Smart Living equals stupidity
So where does wisdom come from? Experience, observation, testing, ect. This would explain from a human perspective why our wisdom is so limited. We couldn’t possibly experience everything, observe everything, test everything. However God the creator of all things, who witnessed all things, who knows the beginning from the end, can give you wisdom beyond human comprehension
But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.James 3:14-16
The main question about wisdom is do we want truth? Many atheists want to argue truth doesn’t even exist, why? Because if truth exists its not dependent on your personal opinion. When your own personal emotions and agendas influence your wisdom, then its not wisdom from God but your own flesh.
This is why if you want wisdom from God, you must first deny yourself. Pride leads to destruction (Proverbs 16:18) God resists the proud (James 4:6) Don’t allow your pride to cloud and confuse Gods wisdom
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. James 3:17
The wisdom from God is without hypocrisy. Do you tell people one thing and live another way, your not wise you’re a hypocrite. Having wisdom is not just head knowledge, but demonstrating your understanding also
God is willing to give all of us this wisdom through the Holy Spirit. God documented his wisdom in his written Word. God demonstrated his wisdom through Jesus Christ. Become like a child and allow God to teach you, Amen!
