Advice or Wisdom

Description

Many people give advice while others are sources of wisdom. Do you give advice or offer godly wisdom?

Many people give advice while others are sources of wisdom. How can you tell one from the other? Advice typically comes in the form of opinion and reflects the viewpoint of the person offering it. Wisdom, the kind of wisdom that Jesus exhibited in His life, has the ring of God’s truth about it, an overarching truth that transcends human understanding. Even His enemies marveled at Jesus’ selfless, God-centered wisdom. Do you give advice or offer godly wisdom?

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

Prayer: Jesus, thank You for offering me Your eternal perspective and wisdom through Scripture and Your Spirit. I don’t want to offer people temporary fixes or self-serving opinions. I want Your wisdom to shape my perspective and my words today. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
