SUMMITWISE: Wisdom From Above

SUMMITWISE: Wisdom From Above
by

James 3:17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.

There are two kinds of wisdom– God’s and man’s. Man’s wisdom is earthly. It lacks an ability to help us live God’s way in God’s world. God’s wisdom, however, is from Him so it is from above. It is from the SUMMIT and it is WISE. As James says, it is “pure, peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.”  No one has possessed that wisdom in greater measure than Jesus Christ, “in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3).  As Christians, we can think of no better source for help in navigating through life.

At Providence OPC we seek that wisdom from above.  With the psalmist of Psalm 121, our eyes look to the hills because our help is from the Lord who made the heavens and the earth. So starting with the launch of our new website we are also starting a blog called SUMMITWISE.  We pray that the Lord will use it to bless the members and guests of Providence OPC.
