Text: James 3:13-18
The entire book of James is a practical exhortation to apply true wisdom to everyday life. In 3:13-18 James demonstrates the impact of both unspiritual (worldly) wisdom and divine wisdom on our personal relationships. Unspiritual wisdom is destructive for the perpetrator and the victim, because it is ultimately based on lies. Divine wisdom does just the opposite, because it is based in Truth. Jesus Christ encountered demonic wisdom and exhibited divine wisdom. There are great lessons in how he responded to evil people and how he treated people in everyday conversations.
