PostSubject: GODLY WISDOM   Fri May 24, 2013 7:31 am

"Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom."
(JAMES 3:13)

Solomon got it right when he first became king of Israel. Still in his youth, he could have asked God for anything. Instead of asking for riches or a long life, he asked for wisdom. And this was pleasing to God. Both then and now, the reality is that godly wisdom is rarely valued. When we do desire wisdom, it often comes out of selfish motives. We are seeking to get something we want or think we deserve. Godly wisdom is something else entirely. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. (James 3:17).
In other words, godly wisdom in action looks like Jesus. It means making God's top priorities your own, giving up your rights for the sake of others, loving unselfishly and serving rather than being served. How do we become people like that? Not by trying to change ourselves! It comes through the power of the Word of God applied daily to our hearts through the work of the Holy Spirit drawing us to Jesus and molding us to His image.

Prayer: Dear Father in Heaven, Please fill me with Your wisdom and the desire to know Your Son, Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I know I can't do this by myself. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
