Thoughts from Pastor Naumann

Biblical Wisdom

By

Pastor Fred Naumann

James 3:17 “But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits without uncertainty or hypocrisy.” If you are like this, let’s have dinner soon.

  1. Pure. There is that purity that is whole-souled and single minded like a hound dog after a rabbit.
  2. Peaceable which is peace-making, peace-loving and peace-provoking.
  3. Gentleness which can forgive and forget.
  4. Open to reason which is willing to listen. His opinion is as important as yours.
  5. Mercy and good fruits are mercy that finds expression in practical deeds.
  6. Without uncertainty. It never wavers or vacillates.
  7. Without hypocrisy. It has no false mask to cover truth.

A delightful wise man indeed with which to spend an evening or a lifetime.
