Heavenly Wisdom Is Pure

 

James 3:17-18

The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.

What of Today’s Verse…

Now I know why righteousness is so hard to find: there aren’t many sowers! Heavenly wisdom is full of sacrificial earthly action. That’s a powerful reminder to me that wisdom is not what you know but what you sow!

Let us Pray:

Holy and Wise Father, thank you for demonstrating purity, peace making, consideration, submissiveness, mercy, good fruit, impartiality, and sincerity in Jesus. I ask for the power and the courage to demonstrate those qualities this week as I seek to live more like him. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Transformation

The Christ light reveals what is true, and I embrace it.

Without much thought, I might attach a negative label to a situation or person. Such an attitude caused me to come to that negative conclusion before I actually knew the person or had all the facts about a situation.

On second look–when I’m looking for the good–I find good. The situation I was a bit leery of becomes an opportunity for me to learn something of value. Taking the initiative to talk with the person I thought was aloof, I find that she responds with genuine interest.

The transformation is not with the situation or person. It actually happens in my own thoughts and attitude. As I let the wisdom of the inner Christ be my guide, I experience a transformation. The Christ light reveals what is true, and I embrace it.

“He will transform the body of our humiliation that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, by the power that also enables him to make all things subject to himself.”–Philippians 3:21
