But the wisdom from above is pure first of all; it is also peaceful, gentle, and friendly; it is full of compassion and produces a harvest of good deeds; it is free from prejudice and hypocrisy.
God’s word serves different purposes. Most importantly, it’s like a mirror and it reflects not only our nature but it’s the standard of measure for our deeds. If the wisdom God gives us is pure and bears only good deeds, then we must always seek heavenly wisdom. However, we know how easy it is for some of us to become vain, jealous, vile, selfish, etc. because we live on earth and are easily swayed. Pray for wisdom because it is paramount to our understanding of God’s word, our relationship with the Holy Spirit and living at peace with all men. Wisdom will open our eyes to see that which is hidden in plain sight.
O Lord, I know your wisdom is principal to all I need. I am asking that you flood my mind and spirit with wisdom from above. Let all earthly tendencies be eliminated from my life. In Jesus’ name.
