“Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.” James 3:13 NIV

Wisdom has four ways in which it can be taught.

There is a moral wisdom that leads to right living, the mental capacity to compute information together with intelligence, the prudential wisdom that carries intellectual and moral insight, and finally the broad and full wisdom shown by executing the full counsel of God in the world and from scripture.

In our theme scripture, the apostle is speaking to those that have truly exercised themselves in the latter, the wisdom whose end is most concerned with executing God’s full counsel from his Word, in this world. He also tells us how to discern such wisdom, we look at its fruit: it is pure, it seeks peace, it is considerate, it is full of mercy, it is submissive, impartial and sincere.

Child of God, whether you are a leader or being led, whether you are a husband or a wife, whether you are a parent or a child, whether you are an employee or an employer, such wisdom is what is expected of God’s offspring .

It speaks of who it is from and manifests distinctly through those who are his. It will be said of you that such was the wisdom you lived by. Hallelujah!

Prayer: Father I thank you for this truth. I thank you for entrusting me with your spirit to lead me and teach me into all truth. With all my gaining, I seek for understanding that my wisdom and knowledge may be reconciled and your name glorified. To you belong all glory, honor and praise! Amen.
