Bible: James 3:13-18

True Wisdom

3:13 Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct he should show his works done in the gentleness that wisdom brings. 1  3:14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfishness in your hearts, do not boast and tell lies against the truth. 3:15 Such 2  wisdom does not come 3  from above but is earthly, natural, 4  demonic. 3:16 For where there is jealousy and selfishness, there is disorder and every evil practice. 3:17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, accommodating, 5  full of mercy and good fruit, 6  impartial, and not hypocritical. 7  3:18 And the fruit that consists of righteousness 8  is planted 9  in peace among 10  those who make peace.
