August 1, 2016 – James 3:17

James3-17bBut the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. James 3:17Wisdom, that elusive quality of knowing what to do with what we know. Knowing is not the end all. The number of degrees of education following our names is not recognized in the path of wisdom.  But a walk in Godly Wisdom is recognized everywhere.The test is loving peace with gentleness and yielding to others. In wisdom there is mercy for others, walking in their shoes, even when they pinch.Wisdom is seeing what others need and guiding them gently with good deeds, without favoritism.   Loving others with purity – and with the fruit of the spirit.Peacemakers plant seeds of peace in a garden of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  They will reap a harvest of righteousness!A garden harvest of pure-living creates peacemakers with wisdom from God.  Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.  Matthew 6:33

 And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness. James 3:18
