13 Who [tis] is a wise man [sophos] and [kai] endued with
knowledge [epistemon] among [en] you [humin]? let him shew [deiknuo] out of [ek] a good [kalos] conversation [anastrophe]
his [autos] works [ergon] with [en] meekness [prautes] of wisdom [sophia].KJV-Interlinear
13 Who among you is wise and
understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of
Knowledge comes easily, wisdom not so easy.Knowledge is the mere accumulation of details
and can easily be faked, abused, made ambiguous, and more often molded into
whatever one wants it to become.Not so
Knowledge is a favorite tool of ego driven folks,
scholars, politicians, celebrities, or want-to-be's, who perceive themselves as
eminent, elite, or otherwise above all of the rest of us.
Their outward approbations are more important to them,
than the correct use of their knowledge.
And James here, challenges us all who wish to be wise,
to make our wisdom from understanding, to be consistent with our daily
life.To approach wisdom from a life of humility
rather than from attention getting ego's.
Wisdom comes from the proper application of truth to
life. Wisdom comes from an understanding
of knowledge, and how knowledge correlates with the realities of life.Knowledge understanding comes from the
correct interpretation of facts with respect to reality.
In life there are two categories of wisdom - that
which is true, and that which is false.All true wisdom comes from heaven.All false wisdom comes not from heaven, but from the source of mans
abuse of truth.
All true wisdom is derived out from the spiritual sphere
in which God wills us all to live.We
call that sphere, fellowship.
All false wisdom comes from outside of that spiritual
All true wisdom comes only from God, through doctrine,
by means of the Holy Spirit, while you are resident in fellowship, learning,
growing, applying, understanding and repeating this whole process day in and
day out all of your life.
All false wisdom comes from the source of the sin
nature, and originates outside of the fellowship sphere.
Being double minded is the instability of a life
fluctuating in and out of fellowship, sometimes operating in accordance with
Gods will, sometimes operating outside of Gods will.
The more fluctuation in ones life means greater
instability, greater arrogance, greater self-centeredness.Less fluctuation in ones spiritual life means
greater stability, greater humility, greater poise, less need for attention,
and greater tolerance (gentleness) toward life in general.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
