Two Types of Wisdom

The Bible says that the "fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom".It does not take long on life's journey to begin to realize that there are two kinds of wisdom. One is rather earthly, devilishly conniving and unspiritual. In the midst of this type of wisdom you will find disorder, self-centeredness and everything that is evil. It's not healthy nor life-giving. But there is another type of that comes from God and the Message bible says this about it in James 3...
"Real wisdom, God's wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. You can develop a healthy, robust community that lives right with God and enjoy its results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honor".
So do you get along well with others? Are you gentle and reasonable or do you find yourself trying to take advantage of people and situations? You have a choice today to use God's wisdom when making your decisions. When REAL wisdom is in operation, you have the greatest chance for success and blessing. Our goal should be live at peace with all of those we come in contact with. We should bring healing and hope.
Today, strive to live a holy life and let good things flow from it.
"Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness."
