James 3:17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. 18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

There’s a misconception that wisdom is something in your brain. “Well I can name all of the provinces of Canada and I can name all of the books of the Bible and I can quote the exact right scripture for the right situation therefor I am smart and wise.”

This isn’t completely true. First of all the bible tells us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom. If you don’t fear God, you’re not smart. You’re not wise. Secondly wisdom from God is pure, peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Does this describe the Christians you hang out with? Does it describe you?

Be honest with yourself. What kind of fruit have you been producing so far in life?
