  1. James 3:17-18 King James Version (KJV)
    17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
    18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

    James 3:17-18 New Life Version (NLV)

    17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure. Then it gives peace. It is gentle and willing to obey. It is full of loving-kindness and of doing good. It has no doubts and does not pretend to be something it is not. 18 Those who plant seeds of peace will gather what is right and good.

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

    17 Godly wisdom only comes thru first receiving Him then thru seeking Him. His given wisdom is without sinful thinking, although we have sinful thinking being in the flesh but the wisdom we have from Him wont have any of the flesh thinking we have. It was also give us a peace even if its something hard and it will allow us to best represent Christ to others.

    18 We can only work for peace by working for the Lord because without Him there is no complete peace. There is no better right living then to be right with the Lord.
