Make an evaluation.

“Real wisdom, God’s wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others.”

James 3:17 MSG


“Whenever you’re trying to look better than others..things fall apart and everyone ends up at the others’ throats.”

James 3:16 MSG

I had no idea James was so political. Who knew.

“Twisting the truth to make yourselves sound wise isn’t wisdom.”

James 3:14 MSG

For the record:

“Mean-spirited ambition isn’t wisdom. Boasting that you are wise isn’t wisdom.”

James 3:14 MSG

Making life count.

“Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It’s the way you live, not the way you talk, that counts.”

James 3:13 MSG

Apparently flippancy with words does matter.

“you can’t tame a tongue—it’s never been done. The tongue runs wild, a wanton killer.”

James 3:8 MSG

Thinking before speaking.

“A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything—or destroy it!”

James 3:5 MSG

Lot of work ahead.

“If you could find someone whose speech was perfectly true, you’d have a perfect person, in perfect control of life.”

James 3:2 MSG

Has this become too old school?

“Teaching is highly responsible work. Teachers are held to the strictest standards.”

James 3:1 MSG

Food for thought.

“Does merely talking about faith indicate that a person really has it?”

James 2:14 MSG
