HEAVENLY WISDOM

James 3: 17 "But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace."

Would you seek after wisdom,
Heavenly wisdom…not of this earth;
The kind that shall not pass away,
And, begins with the "new birth"?

This is the kind of wisdom,
You cannot learn in books;
It surpasses all understanding,
Not of the head…the heart it fills.

And, our heart…a vital organ,
Passes blood…life to all the body;
It keeps on pumping…passing on,
While we, on earth do tarry.

And, just what is this life that flows,
Flows…throughout the body?
Why…it's all the attributes of our God,
All life-producing…flowing out to the needy.

First…wisdom is PURE,
In thought, word and deed;
No ulterior motives…here,
Total purity...in that we shall exceed.

And…wisdom is PEACEABLE,
No arguing here;
At peace with one another,
Each other…we need not fear.

Wisdom…always GENTLE,
No hand lifted in malice;
A gentle spirit shall prevail,
Calm, serene…with all kindness.

A WILLINGNESS TO YIELD,
Not seeking our own way;
But, pliable and loving,
LORD, help us…we do pray.

FULL OF MERCY AND GOOD FRUITS,
It's the cry of our hearts;
Mercy extended to all,
Good fruit…freely given to others.

Wisdom is WITHOUT PARTIALITY,
For all are created equal;
Our LORD has shown no special favor,
We, in turn…to Him…are answerable.

WITHOUT HYPOCRISY…surely wisdom,
Two faces we cannot wear;
We must speak from the heart,
From His Word not depart…others, always forebear.

The end result…FRUIT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS,
Always sown in peace;
And, only by those who make peace,
This is how we shall…His Kingdom increase.

So, let's get with God's program,
Stop doing it our own way;
Surely, by now we've discovered,
His wisdom…is the best way!
