The Fruit is Righteousness

Standard

One man’s wisdom is another man’s foolishness.
Seek wisdom from above.

Make your ear attentive to wisdom, incline your heart to understanding;
For if you cry for discernment, lift your voice for understanding;
If you seek her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will discern the fear of the LORD and discover the knowledge of God.
~Proverbs 2:2-5

Wisdom is seen in actions.
Wisdom is the working out of knowledge.
What do you know?

“Actions speak louder than words.”

Who among you is wise and understanding?
Let him show by his good behavior, his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom.   ~James 3:15

The fool believes in his heart,
“God has given me great wisdom,”
As he moves among others stirring strife.

The fool boasts, but his actions show the origin of his knowledge.

But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth.  This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic.  For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing.  ~James 3:15-16

Wisdom from above leads to peace, gentleness,
And the building up of one another.

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.  ~James 3:17

If you’re wondering where you are in life;
Check out the origin of your knowledge.
Are you standing on His Word?
Are you looking to His ways for counsel?
Only in Him will you walk in wisdom.
You may think you’re wise, but look around.
Your actions are the proof in the pudding.
What seeds are you sowing?
The seed which leads to righteousness is sown in peace.
Wisdom from above is without hypocrisy.

Father, forgive my hypocritical ways.
Let me see clearly where you are leading; and help me to only sow seeds which will bring forth righteousness.  Let me bring You glory in ALL I say and do.  Open my eyes to see.  Keep me from foolish ways which so easily entangle.
Lord, help me follow more closely to You.
