Verse 15 of 52!

This week, the Lord allowed me to memorize James 3:13-16. Lord willing, I will complete the passage next week.

"Who is a wise man, and endued with knowledge among you? Let him show out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. 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 3:13-16

One of the things that stuck out to me while memorizing this was in the first verse: meekness of wisdom. We often enjoy showing our wisdom, but we seem to forget the quality coupled with wisdom: meekness! The wisdom from Above is not proud, haughty wisdom, but humble, meek wisdom.
