“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”.
Wisdom is called for in any situation that comes our way. Either good or bad situations. It is very crucial to seek wisdom as it will guide us to the path that leads to life. For there are many paths that seems right to a man but there is only one path that leads to life everlasting. And we do not seek just any kind of wisdom but we must desire to receive wisdom that comes from the Lord. The question for us today is “How to know God’s wisdom?”.
We can be guided by the verse written by James in his book saying “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”. With this, we will find that wisdom is from a motive and a heart that is first, pure. Wisdom in effect is peace-loving, considerate to others and willingness in submission. It will bear fruit that is nothing but good, pleasing and perfect unto the will of God. As heavenly wisdom come from God, we will find that wisdom itself is a characteristic of God – impartial and sincere.
Meriam Webster defined wisdom as having the ability to discern. Having wisdom, good judgement, discernment is very important and useful in all situations. It shows us how to act towards others, making the most of every opportunity. Admonishing each of us that in every conversation, we will be gracious, and our words always seasoned with salt.
For anyone who lacks wisdom, we are encouraged to ask from God and certainly it will be given to us. With heavenly wisdom as one of our foundations in transforming this nation through values, indeed we shall be overcomers and more than conquerors amidst our present circumstances.
