Some people may sometimes suggest we do what seems most practical at the moment. But there’s a difference between worldly and spiritual wisdom.

Wisdom from “above” is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy, so says James 3:17. When others are urging us to take a certain course of action, we can invite Jesus to influence our way of thinking. One is truly wise who gains wisdom from above.
