Words of the wise

King Solomon said that a fool thinks he needs no advice, but a wise man listens to others (Proverbs 12:15 Paraphrase).
Throughout the history of the Christian church God has raised up men and women to speak ‘the wisdom from above’ to those who have ears to hear.

James tells us that this wisdom is:

2. Peaceable Gr. Eirenikos (opposed to the use of force)
3. Gentle, Gr. Epieikes (appropriate, with moderation, meek but not week)
4. Easily entreated Gr. Eupeithes (good for persuasion)

6. Good Fruits Gr. Agathos Karpos (Good fruit that is plucked and ready for use)
7. Without Partiality Gr. Adiakritos (does not distinguish but is fair to all)
8. Without Hypocrisy Gr. Anupokritos (does not conceal feelings by pretence)

There is no intent to offend anyone, but rather to ‘speak the truth in love’.

May these comments challenge, encourage and edify you.
