  1. Wholehearted, straightforward, and sincere.
    I love these powerful adjectives,and truly need the power of the Spirit to live them out today!

  2. Being wise is keeping your mouth shut when you could blow like Vesuvius. I am always amazed at how Jesus kept His mouth shut. I’m glad He did because we could not have. I had to get control of a situation a couple of hours ago, I was irritated bust used wisdom. Sometimes it is also speaking out, the know when is wisdom. It’s something we certainly need to pray for and discernment. Appearances are sometimes deceiving.

  3. As I’ve grown older, I’ve realized that is isn’t all about me. When I was younger someone would say something that offended me and I wouldn’t know what to say. Afterward I would think of all the comebacks I. could have said, wishing I had. Then one day I realized that I didn’t say those things because the Holy Spirit was guiding me to be more like Christ, to turn the other cheek. It’s not about me, it’s about reflecting Christ in my life.

      What a gift, Robin, to realize the wisdom in not answering back when someone offends us.

  4. That whole knowing when to back down thing is a struggle for me! And seeing it in my own kids now really shines a light on how God sees me. Lot’s of great stuff here, Rachel! Blessings!

  5. I think the whole world needs wisdom as you described here. Definitely the peace-loving and gentle part. I appreciate the read, reflect, respond parts of your post too. The word of God makes no difference if we don’t respond to it. Thanks!

      So true, Karen. We have to keep practicing putting God’s Word into action so it becomes a habit.

  6. I love James’ description of godly wisdom – so much of what we consider to be wisdom falls short of God’s standard, doesn’t it? God is so good to teach us what true wisdom looks like. Thank you for sharing this with us at Grace & Truth!

      And godly wisdom looks so different from human wisdom, too. Thank you for visiting Jennifer.
