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. (James 3:13 MSG)
To be healthy is to live with out sickness and disease. Sin is a virus that cause our spirit and soul to live sick. It is only the salvation provided by a relationship with Jesus that is the cure for this epidemic.
Wisdom can only come from a more intellegent source. There is none more intellegent than the creater of intllegence. This wise living can only be a reality when there is an authentic relationship with the Holy Spirit. The great Counselor speaks wisdom deep in our souls!
One can be humble or be humiliated the choice is ours. Living in humility is as simple as acknowledging that God is Father of your life. The Father must have our entire heart to be able to lead our lives. Living in the Kingdom of God is not a location it is having a King. We live to expand the Kingdom our Father rules.
Lord I pray that my life would be lived the way you have planned for me. Forgive me of my sin. Speak deep to my soul. Lead me to lead like you. Bless Sarah today as she start a new chapter of her life. Bless my kids with love and your presence. Bless Hope with a deep sense of awe as we gather this morning.
