Wisdom Leads to an Honorable Way of Life-James 3 part 2

Wisdom leads to living honorably.  Wise folks do not waste their time with bitterness, jealousy or deception.  Instead, they seek God with their hearts.  As they seek him he reveals himself in amazing ways and times.  He is rarely early but his plan always seems to be correct and the right direction for our lives. 

It is our choice to face the journey with wisdom and patience; or to face it with anger and bitterness.  The latter always ends badly; while the former always glorifies the Lord.  God loves it when we honor him and lifts us when we choose to honor him.  Help me Lord, to be wise not bitter.  Help me to seek you at all points of the Journey.

God Bless You

13 If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying. 15 For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. 16 For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind.

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. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. 18 And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.
