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”
Open to reason
Full of mercy
Full of good fruits
