Heavenly Wisdom

James, in chapter 3, verses 13-16 talks about the earthly and demonic “wisdom” of selfish ambition and bitter envy. It creates strife, disorder and evil practices. Then he says:

But 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. 18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness. – James 3:17-18 (NIV)

Heavenly wisdom is all about using God’s gifts to bring about peace. Too often we use what God gives us to our advantage in order to get ahead. Instead, we need to use the gifts God gives to us for others. Imagine if we used our time, talent and treasure to make the world a better place. If we invested ourselves in living for Jesus and living for others, what could we accomplish? This is the challenge for us in the church today. Let us commit ourselves to using what God has given to us to show His love and grace to everyone.
