10/1/14 Daily Devotion

James 3:15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil.

This verse is referring back to verse fourteen in which James is speaking about harboring bitter envy and selfish ambition. James wants us to understand that possessing or acting in such a manner is not condoned or taught by God. He further wants us to know that posing or acting in such manner comes from following the influence of the world. It’s easy to be mad. It’s easy to hold a grudge. It’s easy to harbor envy and bitterness. Doing the right thing is not always easy, but it is our best option. It is the desire of God.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me act in a manner that reflects Your presence within my life and shows compassion to those within this world.
