“Discern Between Two Types of Wisdom”

Pastor John Gensmer’s  Sermon:  Discern Between Two Types of Wisdom”

September 26th, 2021 at Abiding Love Lutheran Church

I. The Wisdon that Seems Right to Man

II. The Wisdom that Comes Down from Heaven

James 3:13-18

13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

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.
