Godly vs. Earthly
James 3:15-18 This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic...
James gives us a comparison of godly wisdom and earthly wisdom in James 3:15-18, and there is a marked difference. I read this passage a number of times, and each time I was drawn to the second half of verse 13. It really got me thinking about wisdom. "By his good conduct let him [the wise person] show his works in the meekness of wisdom."
So what does the phrase "meekness of wisdom" mean for you? Think back over the past couple of weeks. How have you lived out or demonstrated godly wisdom? Tami
