December 11

One of my favorite verses is James 3:17: 

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. 

Some people thrive on drama and are not at peace within. They spend much of their lives stirring up anxiety in others. Why? To make themselves feel better about their own misery. I try to stay clear of people like that because they interrupt my peace, and they aren’t living in the wisdom from above. When you read this verse, make an assessment of yourself; read each word and ask, “do I exhibit this attribute?” If you’re lacking in any of these areas, consider praying and asking God to help you gain the wisdom that is only available from him. It’s much easier to deal with people if you have attained his wisdom.
