Who is wise and understanding among you?
LET HIM SHOW IT BY HIS GOOD LIFE,
BY DEEDS DONE IN HUMILITY
THAT COMES FROM WISDOM.
But if you harbor Bitter Envy and Selfish Ambition in your hearts,
Do not boast about it or deny the truth.
SUCH WISDOM DOES NOT COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN
BUT IS EARTHLY, UNSPIRITUAL, OF THE DEVIL.
FOR WHERE YOU HAVE ENVY AND SELFISH AMBITION,
THERE YOU FIND DISORDER AND EVERY EVIL PRACTICE.
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.
PEACEMAKERS WHO SOW IN PEACE
RAISE A HARVEST OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.
True Wisdom comes only from Heaven;
It is a Wisdom in Obedience to the Word of God.
Outside of Obedience to the Word of God,
There is No Wisdom.
What do we see in America and the World?
Bitter Envy, Selfish Ambition,
Which is Earthly, Unspiritual, of the Devil.
And what is the Result of this?
We see Disorder and Every Evil Practice.
