|what seeds are you planting?|
The wisdom of God is so different from human wisdom. There are huge gaps between the two. God’s wisdom depends on faith whereas human wisdom depends strength or logic that often looses momentum.
What we have to realize is wrong motives as well as bitterness or jealousy, the next verses join those, will remove faith possibilities and power from our lives. What are you planting in your life and in the lives of the people around you.
These verses are pretty plain. Wisdom from God breeds peace, is pure and contains boatloads of mercy as well we as others things. That means that our lives should overflow with God’s best and His wisdom. May that be seen through us being people of peace who spread mercy.
James 3:13-18 NLT
If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying. 15 For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. 16 For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind. 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. 18 And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.
It was a great honor tonight to sit and listen to the almost 50 members of the mission team from Mississippi working on our new campus. Their teaching and testimonies overflowed with the wisdom of God. Listening to those with wisdom and the elder team members teaching the younger ones were incredible. In turn listening to the younger team members encourage the older ones was a picture of how the family of God is to future.
This team is planting seeds of peace that will bring a harvest of righteousness. It really is amazing to be part of something bigger than we are. What seeds are you planting?
