Are you wise? Do you possess wisdom?
According to The Free Dictionary, Wisdom is “The ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting; insight; common sense; good judgment”
However, according to the Bible, Wisdom—that comes from God (James 3:17) is:
- peace loving
- always gentle
- willing to yield to others
- full of mercy
- full of good deeds
- doesn’t show favoritism
- is always sincere
That sounds a lot different, doesn’t it?
By this standard, are you wise?
A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 1,000-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and many books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
