If you were given one wish, for what would you ask? A lot of money? Fame? A long life?

 

I heard about a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary. They were both about 50 years old.  As they strolled along the beach, the husband accidentally kicked over a bottle hidden in the sand.  A genie emerged. “You can each have one wish,” she said.

 

The wife made her wish first. “I would like a luxurious trip around the world with my husband.” Suddenly there appeared in her hand two tickets for just such an adventure.

 

Now it was the husbands turn. “Well,” said the husband, with a mischievous look on his face, “I wish my wife were 25 years younger than I am.” The words were barely out of his mouth when, poof, he became 75 years old!

 

The reality is that, if you lack wisdom, even wishes that come true can become curses. Above all else we need wisdom! If you’re going to “make a wish,” wish for wisdom! Pray rightly for it and God will grant it!

 

This Sunday at Istrouma we will focus on James 3:13-18 and what God says there about wisdom. Be sure to join us!  It’ll be better for you than a trip around the world!

 

James: Practical Spirituality

“Wish for Wisdom!”   

James 3:13-18

 

  1. Different origins of wisdom

 

This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic (3:15)

 

  1. There’s a wisdom from heaven

 

  1. There’s a wisdom from hell

 

 

  1. Different operations of wisdom

 

For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere (3:16-17).

 

  1. There’s a wisdom that is selfish

 

  1. There’s a wisdom that is spiritual

 

 

  1. Different outcomes of wisdom

 

And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace (3:18).

 

  1. There’s a wisdom that produces rebellion
  2. There’s a wisdom that produces righteousness
