Wisdom from above



The Bible has much to say about wisdom, including a warning that not all that looks like wisdom is truly wise in God’s eyes. Jesus is the embodiment of true wisdom, wiser than Solomon. James gives us a tool for determining whether we are seeking true wisdom from above or settling for what the world calls wise, which will make a fool out of us.

Steadfast in the Faithful God



Growing in wisdom.  James challenged his readers and us to call out to God for wisdom right after telling them to rejoice in tribulation for the endurance it produces in the believer’s life.  No coincidence.  James had seen in the life of Jesus that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.  And wisdom is to trust God even when the challenges of our life don’t make sense.  And Christ sustains us when we seek to trust Him above trusting our reasoning.
