Sincere Wisdom Does Not Muddle but is Merciful
James 3:16-17 (KJB) For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 17 But 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.
Wisdom from above is supernatural, or above that naturally found at work in this world. Genuine understanding is pure and spiritually perceptive and only found inside a personal relationship with God and separated apart from confusion, strife, and wickedness working in this world.
The sincere wisdom given of God is spiritually flavored with peace, calmness, mercy, bountiful spiritual fruit production, without undue bias, and is eternally sincere. The pure unadulterated wisdom of God aligns hearts to Him and each other, while spiritually lost souls led by the world’s understanding, are divisive, dirty, and in the throes of spiritual disarray.
God’s eternal brand of wisdom always leads to peace and offers greater communion with Him and in our relationships with others. God’s wisdom is merciful, gentle, and produces lasting spiritual fruit, not confusion and chaos.
