2 Leonardo DiCaprio To Play Billy Milligan In New Movie "The Crowded Room"
3 WISDOM FROM ABOVE EARTHLY WORDLY DEMONIC WISDOM SUFFERING FROM MULTIPLE PERSONALITY DISORDER? ARE THE TWO KINDS OF WISDOM DUKING IT OUT IN YOUR SOUL?
4 Feeling a bit Schizophrenic? Romans 7 15 For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate. 18 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh; for the willing is present in me, but the doing of the good is not. 19 For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. 20 But if I am doing the very thing I do not want, I am no longer the one doing it, but sin which dwells in me. 21 I find then the principle that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good. 22 For I joyfully concur with the law of God in the inner man, 23 but I see a different law in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is in my members.
5 James 3: Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. 18 And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
6 1. TWO KINDS OF WISDOM WISDOM FROM ABOVE WORLDY WISDOM
7 James 3:13a 13 Who among you is wise and understanding? The Skill Of Applying Knowledge To Practical Living. The Skill Of Applying Specialized Expertise To Practical Situations.
8 Understanding Wisdom KNOWLEDGE Mathematics Music Theory Anatomy Knowing the Law WISDOM Engineering Music Performance Surgery Doing the Right Thing
9 James 3:13b 13 Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom. WISDOM GOOD BEHAVIOR GENTENESS AND MEEKNESS
10 How You Can Identify a Godly Wise Man The Wisdom from above is not characterized by being successful, profitable, prudent, or safe. Rather it is identified by character conduct.
11 James 3:15 WORLDLY WISDOM 15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural [unspiritual], and demonic. Three Sources of Ungodly Wisdom The World The Flesh And the Devil The World Appeals to our Materialism The Flesh appeals to our basest desires. The Devil deceives us
12 Compare Ephesians 2:1-3 And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, 2 in which you formerly walked according to the Course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. 3 Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh,
13 Compare 1 John 2:14, 6 and you have overcome the evil one.. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.
14 2. TWO KINDS OF CHARACTER
15 James 3:14 Bitterness Envy/ Jealousy MALCONTENT 14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. Lies WHY ME?
16 James 3:14 cont. Selfishness Ambition COMPETITIVENESS Arrogance IT S ALL ABOUT ME
17 The Sin of Selfish Ambition Yabba Dubba Doo?
18 Compare Galatians 5 The Acts of the Flesh 19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like.
19 Bitter Envy and Selfish Ambiton Bitter: Harsh and resentful attitude toward others. Advances self by hurting others. Selfish Ambition: Self seeking that generates antagonism and factionalism Puts self interest above others
20 WORLDLY WISDOM 1. IS OF THE EARTH, AND NOT HEAVENLY 2. IS OF THE FLESH, AND NOT SPIRITUAL 3. IS OF THE DEVIL, AND NOT GODLY 1. Concerned with the temporal things of this world 2. Focused on the material and physical success 3. Gives victory and advantage to the devil.
21 The Effects of Worldly Wisdom Bitterness, Jealousy and Lies seek to Undermine others. Selfish Ambition and Arrogance place the interests of others below the interests of one self. Worldly Wisdom Elevates our Ego Godly Wisdom elevates others.
22 James 3:17 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, Reasonable (flexible), full of mercy and good fruits, Unwavering (consistent), without hypocrisy (sincere).
23 Compare Matthew 5 Sermon on the Mount 5 Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth. 6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. 7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. 8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
24 Compare Galatians 5 The Fruit of the Spirit 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
25 THE WISDOM FROM ABOVE QUALITY PURE PEACEABLE GENTLE REASONABLE CONSISTENT MERCIFUL SYNONYMS TRANSPARENT, INTEGRITY, SINCERETY, TRUTHFUL, HOLY PEACE MAKING, NOT CONTENTIOUS, LIVES IN HARMONY WITH OTHERS TURNING CHEEK, GOES EXTRA MILE SYMPATHY, EMPATHY, KIND, NOT A STICKLER FLEXIBLE, TEACHABLE, COMPLIANT, WILLING TO BEND, WILLING TO YIELD. UNWAVERING, CONVICTION, EQUALITY GRACIOUS, QUICK TO FORGIVE, COMPASSIONATE, NOT A STICKLER SINCERE GOOD FRUIT GENUINE, TRUSTWORTHY, HONEST, NOT ARBITRARY OR HYPOCRITICAL RIGHTEOUSNESS
26 The Gentleness of Godly Wisdom Flexible and Gentle Consistent and Good Fruit Not Selfish Not Disorder Sincere and Pure Peaceable and Merciful
27 3. TWO KINDS OF FRUIT
28 James 3:16 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. Jealousy Disorder Ambition Every Evil Thing
29 James 3:18 18 And the seed whose fruit is righteous ness is sown in peace by those who make peace. GODLY WISDOM SOWN IN PEACE MAKE PEACE FRUIT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
30 . 4. Getting Wisdom
31 Getting Wisdom Read it Listen to it Ask for it Consult Got about it Associate with it Accept Criticism and set Psalm 19:7: The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple Prov. 1:5: A wise man will hear and increase in learning, And a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel, Prov. 19:20: Listen to counsel and accept discipline, That you may be wise the rest. of your days Prov. 2:6: For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding. Prov. 9:10: The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding Proverbs 13:20: He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm. Prov. 15:31: He whose ear listens to the life-giving reproof Will dwell among the wise.
32 5. APPLICATIONS
33 Are you selfish, self-seeking and self-centered. Is it all about you? Are you harsh or gentle with your wife and children? Do you argue a lot? Do you need to win? Are you feuding with your children, wife or neighbor? Are you jealous? Envious?
34 Compare Matthew 5 The Extra Mile Principle 39 But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40 If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. 4 1 Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. 42 Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.

37 The Wise Father DON T BE A STICKLER DON T BE A LEGALIST DON T PROVOKE DON T BE HARSH Flexible and Gentle Consistent and Good Fruit ENCOURAGE Not Selfish Sincere and Pure Peaceable and Merciful Not Disorder
