“This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.” James 3:15-16 KJV
If you realize you are following the wisdom of the world in your life and you want to change - what type of wisdom should we have?
But how do we know if we are on the right track of finding this wisdom? We know because it is pure, merciful, and peaceful. Someone who has God's wisdom will admit when they are wrong to their friends and ask Christ to show them the right way to live. This wisdom will also help us to see that we aren't born perfect, but we can learn how to sin less by being God's friend! All this was made possible because God sent His only Son to die for our sins on the cross. Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior?
Do you see the difference between following God and following the world? If we follow people and their ways, we tend to stop loving God and may even build resentful feelings to our fellow man. But when we following after Him, God's peace will comfort us in times of trouble and bring a quiet spirit into our lives; we will fall in love with Him in all humility. O, the joys of a life given over to God! Do you have this life today?
