Message of the Day: True Wisdom is Having A Good and Fruitful Life

Who is wise among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom.” (James 3:13, NKJV)

This passage refers to some teachers who hold on to some doctrine and ambitiously claim to be brilliant or wise but with little love for Christ. Such persons were producing only jealousy, selfishness, dishonesty and division. James calls such wisdom as from the devil. It is worldly wisdom. Wisdom that is not from God results in wrong actions and decisions.

It follows that true wisdom is characterized by humility and uprightness. James suggests that the best way to show this brand of wisdom is by a good and fruitful life.
