James 3:17 ” But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.”

Wisdom is a divine gift from above… joined with purity of heart and life, it’s described by eight characteristics here. The first and most important is purity. Godly wisdom is like God’s Word…the absolute and unadulterated truth. The next seven are practical applications of wisdom in our everyday life with people we come in contact with. They are also the effects of wisdom in our own lives that bear witness by how we treat others. Proverbs 4:7 tells us that, “Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom.”…meaning wisdom is foundational or the cornerstone for our successful journey as Believers.
