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.

At Your Wits End Is God

Proverbs 1:7 (KJB) The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

A “know-it-all” in this world knows nothing about the wisdom and understanding of God.  Instead, he or she knows about things of this world which often stand in opposition to the will and way of God.  This is foolish living.

On the other hand, a spiritually humble person is ready and willing to learn of God.  ...
