Are you applying Earthly wisdom or Biblical wisdom to your life? Don’t know or unsure? Then read below and the type of life you have will tell you what type of wisdom you are applying.
Earthly wisdom is man doing what he believes is best for him based on his human knowledge, experience and understanding.
The result of using earthly wisdom to deal with a life situation is: bitterness, selfishness, strife, anxiety, stress, confusion, earthly desires and concerns. Ultimately misery.
Biblical wisdom involves applying God’s knowledge and understanding to everyday life with each situation encountered.
James 3:17-18 states “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.”
The result of using Biblical wisdom to deal with a life situation is: peacefulness, gentleness, kindness, love for others, sincerity, Godly desires and concerns. Ultimately, finding joy in the circumstance. Wow! What a difference in result.
