Nine Virtues of wisdom that is from above
- Nine Virtues of wisdom that is from above�
Ja. 3:17: But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.�
Ja. 1:5: If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.� [We may ask the Lord for wisdom in general, and for particular situations, difficulties and decisions including small things. Our God helps us in small things as in great matters – all to His glory.]
Ja. 3:13: Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. meekness of wisdom� = humility which is the proper attribute of true wisdom, The Amplified Bible]
When we are in Christ, He is our wisdom, 1 Cor. 1:30: But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.� Lord, let me always look to you as my wisdom. Amen.
Prov. 2:1-5 shows how we may pray for wisdom: My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you, so that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; Yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding, if you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.� [fear of the LORD� + knowledge of God� = wisdom� + understanding�]
Thankful for your prayers,
