Heavenly Wisdom (James 3:17-18)

- What God’s wisdom looks like: pure (sinless, blameless), peace-loving (peaceable, not contentious or quarrelsome/marked by freedom from strife or disorder), considerate (thoughtful, gentle), submissive (willing to yield, quick to show deference to others), full of mercy (compassion, forbearance shown especially to an offender; charity, clemency, grace), full of good fruit (the good/positive effect or consequence of an action, the fruit of the Spirit--Galatians 5:22 and the fruit of the light--Ephesians 5:9), impartial (fair, showing no favoritism), sincere (honest, without hypocrisy).
- We are called to be peacemakers...to sow seeds of peace. If we do so, we’ll reap the fruit of righteousness.
- Godly wisdom is the gift of God; it’s practical wisdom that preserves unity and peace.
- James 3:18 is in contrast to James 1:20. Peace producing righteousness vs. anger not producing righteousness.
