Wisdom

“Do you want to be counted wise, to build a reputation for wisdom?

Here’s what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It’s the way you live, not the way you talk, that counts. Mean spirited ambition isn’t wisdom. Bosting that you are wise isn’t wisdom. Twisting the truth to make yourselves sound wise isn’t wisdom. It’s the furthest thing from wisdom – it’s animal cunning, devilish conniving.

Whever you’re trying to look better than others or get the better of others, things fall apart and everyone ends up at the others’ throats.”

The Bible – James 3:13-16
