Scripture:  James (NIV) 3:13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.

Observation:   Wisdom and understanding are two characteristics that are not boastfully proclaimed by those who possess them.   Yet they are easily recognized by others.    Wisdom and understanding are seen in the way a person lives their life, conducts their business and the way they treat other people.  Wisdom and understanding naturally lead to humility.

Application:   The source of all wisdom and understanding is God.   When He gives me wisdom and understanding, the logical response is to give Him the glory and walk in humility.   True wisdom understands that there is no place for pride.

Prayer:     Heavenly Father, you are so generous to share your wisdom with me.   You know better than I how much I need your input.   Thank you for understanding me and my needs. Amen
