The Wisdom From Above

The Wisdom From Above

Recently,  a number of university students  were randomly interviewed  regarding their position  on what should be considered politically correct.     They expressed thoughts like:   public bathrooms and showers  should be cross gender  —  an average sized man  should be able to think  he is a seven year old first grader  —  that same man  could also validly claim  to be a 6 foot,  4 inch tall woman  —  and the ridiculous scenarios went on…

Those interviews revealed  how fearful many are  of not being politically correct.     They are afraid  of standing up  for the obvious truth  because they don’t want  to be rejected  or harmed  by those,  who are belligerently  and militantly forcing  all sorts  of worldly ideas  on everyone else.

Denying obvious truths  are foolish  —  but we are seeing much  of that sort  of senseless foolishness  these days.     These truth deniers  are being foolish,  but claiming  to be wise.     James 3:17  describes the kind  of Godly  “wisdom”  we should strive for.

But  the wisdom  from above  is first pure,  then peaceable,  gentle,  reasonable,  full of mercy  and good fruits,  unwavering,  without hypocrisy.

When James mentions “wisdom”  that is  “reasonable”,  it means being willing  to yield  to God’s will  and ways.    Note that “wisdom” is “without hypocrisy”.     Denying the obvious  is hypocritical.

Proverbs 1:7  describes  the dilemma  that some people are allowing  to overtake them today,

The fear  of the LORD  is the beginning  of knowledge;
Fools  despise wisdom  and instruction.

Real  “wisdom”  accepts obvious truths,  and “instruction”  from God’s eternal word.     So  Psalm 111:10 teaches,

The fear  of the LORD  is the beginning  of wisdom;
A good understanding  have all those  who do  His commandments;
His praise  endures forever.

So glad  for the peace,  love,  and true wisdom  of God’s word,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for the beauty  and wonders  of Your wisdom.”

Love,
Margaret
