God’s wisdom does much more than make us wise; His wisdom transforms our character. The Bible says: “But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.” (James‬ 3:17‬) It is impossible to open up our hearts to the wisdom of God and NOT be changed. 

God’s wisdom impresses HIS character upon our lives.

The Bible explains that the evidence of God’s wisdom in our life is manifested in “the meekness of wisdom” not—in the pride of our knowledge. The Bible says: “Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct, let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.” (James‬ 3:13-15)

My selfish ambitions fueled all my years of pursuing worldly wisdom. I didn’t understand that I couldn’t possess God’s supreme understanding without Him changing my heart, because—His wisdom isn’t available to any of us—without Him. The evidence that we have God’s wisdom is manifested in our character and what we do. God’s wisdom humbles us and produces pureness, gentleness, mercy, and sincerity, all of which are a reflection of His love.

When God touches our hearts, we are never the same.‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
