Wisdom Characteristics

Image    I am reading through and doing the 1 month study guide to Jim Berg’s “When Trouble Comes” I’m a week in and it has already been challenging to me.

I wanted to share with you all one area that especially challenged me. It comes from James 3…I want to grow in wisdom! It seems that especially since Rand’s heart attack I have been pushed to God like never before. I find myself begging God to give me wisdom which He promises to give (James 1:5) But, as I read James 3 I realized that true and pure wisdom comes with some amazing characteristics that I want to make part of my life. I want these characteristics to be true even with my interaction to those that I don’t necessarily get along with or agree with…with the Lord’s help I can be a man of Wisdom and godly character!

Here are the characteristics from James 3:

Bless Jesus and the Father

Show works in “meekness of wisdom”

Purity

Peaceable

Gentle

Open to reason

Full of mercy

Full of good fruits

Impartial

Sincere

Righteous

    What does the “Show works in Meekness of Wisdom” mean?

    • 

      Meekness of wisdom is explained in detail in vs. 17…the idea behind this passage is…those who think well and talk well are not necessarily spiritually wise…true wisdom is seen in a persons actions and demeanor (meekness of wisdom)…
