Today's Good News


09/10          James 3:17

17 But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. 


I need wisdom to live a Christ like life.  I cannot get this wisdom from the world.  It is not in the next self-help books.  God’s wisdom is different from man’s wisdom. His wisdom says to be long-suffering, to show our value of others, to care for the orphan and widow and to listen to others as they voice their pain and suffering.  We are called to be merciful.  There is the need for good works.  We are to live a life of genuineness, sincerity and unbiased care for others.  People count with the Lord.  When the Lord is first and people count with us we are on the road to wisdom.  Follow Jesus, help people.
