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.
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!
