September 23, 2018


I.   Genuine wisdom is worked out in the way we live. James 3:13.


II.  The characteristics and results of false wisdom. James 3:14-16.


III. The characterists of true wisdom. James 3:17.


IV.   A vision of peace. James 3:18.


Questions for reflection:

  • How would you define wisdom? How is wisdom different from knowledge?
  • Who are some of the wisest people youi know? What makes them wise?
  • Why are jealousy and bitter ambition so hazardous for the Christian community?
  • How does the Old Testament understanding of shalom help is to better understandJames's emphasis on 'peace'in verse 18?
