Show Your Wisdom (James 3:13)

- We need God’s wisdom (we mine God’s Word for wisdom and we pray for His wisdom–James 1:5) and we need the Holy Spirit to give us understanding and discernment.
- Wisdom is authenticated by how we live our lives/how we conduct ourselves. Even if our w
ords are wise, a life not lived out accordingly will cause those words to be ignored or rejected.
- Godly wisdom will be displayed in humility/meekness. We must be careful not to let the pride (sin) creep in. When we think we are wise and know-it-all and become arrogant & prideful, we are indeed fools and lack Godly wisdom. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him/submit to Him (this shows humility), and He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes (do not become arrogant/prideful); fear the Lord and shun evil." Proverbs 3:5-7
