James: Wisdom

James 1:5-7, 3:13-18

Have you ever seen a master at work?  Maybe it’s an olympic athlete, or a professional musician, expert businessperson, or gifted parent.  It’s amazing to watch.  They have knowledge and it is combined with great skill but there’s more than that, it’s an art, a finesse.  They are wise. They understand all the parts of their profession and bring out more than just results, but something beautiful and amazing to watch.  James reminds us that wisdom comes from God, the one who in his infinite wisdom put the world together.  And he is offering to give us his wisdom in the decisions we make, as we parent, or date, or work in our marriage, or develop in our career.  He gives us wisdom that goes beyond just living well, but inviting us, like Jesus, to live like the Master!
