My Brother James: Godly Wisdom

Passage: Matthew 7:24-27; James 3:13-18

"Everyone, then, who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall because it had been founded on rock." Matthew 7:24-25 The church is built on the rock that is the wisdom of God. God's wisdom seeks to bring us into community with one another, to work towards treating the neighbor as ourselves, and to draw closer to the love of Christ. This wisdom can often be counter cultural to the wisdom we hear about each day. Wisdom that might be focused more on how to increase your own wealth, how to be a self-made person, or seeks to pass blame onto others. Join us this Sunday as we explore how the instruction manual of James challenges this earthly wisdom and shows us how to live our lives focused on a transformative Godly wisdom.
