Day 5 – Use Wise Words

Everyone wants to be known for speaking with wisdom, and God generously promises to give us wisdom when we ask. (James 1:5-8) Unfortunately, we sometimes confuse God’s true wisdom with worldly wisdom. How can we spot the differences? James 3 shows us very clearly the answer.

Study it Out

  1. According to James 3:13-18, what are the key differences between earthly wisdom and heavenly wisdom? What results from using earthly wisdom versus heavenly wisdom?
  2. Who is the source of all wisdom according to Colossians 3:16 and Proverbs 2:6? How then, do we gain wisdom?

Personal Application

Do you find yourself quick to defend or promote yourself in conversations? Do you feel the need to justify yourself or argue your point? Take time to evaluate whether you are making use of Godly wisdom or worldly wisdom.
