I feel this is something we should all work on. We should all seek wisdom and understanding that comes from God and work on living a live that resembles Christ.
In verse 17 it says, “But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.”
This is where we all should desire to be, and we should let nothing get in the way of us moving toward Christ. It says “if we are wise and understand God’s way…” how do we truly do this without the passion to learn about it every day? There is so much excitement when we can live truly loving God first and then doing our best to continually grow in our understanding.
I would like to end with James chapter 4 verse 8 which says, “Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.”
Forget the world and live, Amen.
