09 James 3:13-18 - Wisdom from above (James 3:13-18)Terri Weiser, March 7, 2012
Part of the James series, taught at a Wednesday in the Word Bible study
James contrasts the wisdom from above with earthly wisdom. The kind of wisdom you possess will be revealed in your lifestyle. Wisdom from above is skill in the art of godly wisdom which flows out of a relationship with God and trust in His ordering of the world.

13Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. 14But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. 15This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 17But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. 18And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. (KJV)
