Wisdom That is From Above

Wisdom That Is From Above

James 3:17

17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
KJV

Wisdom (true wisdom that is from above) is like dew. It is largely uncontaminated, it falls silently (often unnoticed); it is easily absorbed by the earth and its vegetation; it usually appears in the absence of rain and it is distributed evenly upon parched lands to assist in the production of fruit; it is no respecter of persons or things (for it blankets and falls upon everything and everyone underneath it) and similar to snowflakes, every drop of dew has its own distinctive character that is unchangeable in nature, reeking of sincerity, authenticity and simplicity. This is also true of the wisdom that comes from God through Jesus Christ. Let us be ever so careful to only ascribe the term wisdom to those words that possess these characteristics.

[My doctrine shall drop as the rain,
My speech shall distil as the dew,
As the small rain upon the tender herb,
And as the showers upon the grass. Because I will publish the name of the Lord.] Deuteronomy 32:2-3 KJV

Brian Johnson, Ph.D.
