True Wisdom Is More Than Knowledge

“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere..”


James 3:17


When you think about wisdom what comes to mind? For me, several different things pop up. One is knowledge, another is knowing when to stop or start, and another is being able to ask questions when you don’t understand. I used to think that wisdom is being able to answer every question every time. Knowing the answers meant that you were smart. I learned that wisdom is so much more than knowing the answers and being considered smart by my peers.

Wisdom from form heaven is so much more than knowing all the answers. It is being able to pray anytime anywhere, it is giving all of our problems and the things that go great to God. It is knowing that we aren’t really in control of our lives, but he is. It is being able to forgive anyone for anything that they have done. It is not showing favoritism, anger, judgment, or condemnation. It is following God’s commands without hesitation.

True heavenly wisdom is so much more than knowledge; it is trusting in God with all of your heart. Heavenly wisdom is not gained through worldly experiences but is given freely to all of those who ask. It is our duty to use the wisdom God provides us to serve him better.


God, we come to you today to ask for your help. We ask that you help to bless us with your wisdom. Help us to discern the difference between worldly wisdom and heavenly wisdom.

Lord, we thank you for everything that you have given unto us. We ask that you help us to use all of the wisdom you have blessed us with for you. Show us how and where you need us to use our gifts. Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us..
