Sophos

Day 11 – Soul Detox

James 3:1-18

Devotional

Don’t internalize the toxic words that others speak about you. Instead, guard your heart against toxic words, and every chance you get, speak life-giving words.

Why do you think we tend to speak more toxic words than life-giving words even when we don’t intend to?

I have read these verses not less than three times and to pick out one verse or even two verses to highlight here with you — well, so far, NOT. You just need to read the whole of it and allow the HOLY SPIRIT to speak.

I can say this much, the wisdom from above that is spoken of in verse 17; the Greek Lexicon (online) let me know this wisdom is most needed and much lacking. It is described this way:

forming the best plans and using the best means for their execution

via Sophos – New Testament Greek Lexicon – King James Version.

But it does not stop there. For you see forming best plans and best means of execution would be perverted UNLESS said wisdom comes from above and that wisdom; the wisdom coming from GOD is first pure; not gunked up with self-serving self. And it is

then peaceful, kind, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.

via James 3:1-18 CJB – Not many of you should become teachers, – Bible Gateway.

Are you challenged to think with Wisdom? Godly wisdom? Is this appealing to somebody today?

A surpassing Thursday, my Friends!
