I just love the book of James...it has everything in it for understanding life. Here is just one passage that I think if we would all follow maybe things would be a bit better for all.
I will post 2 version of it but both have the same meaning...
James 3:17-18 (nkjv)
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure,then peaceable,gentle,willing to yield,full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.
Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
Real wisdom, God's wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable,overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. You can develop a healthy, robust community that lives right with God and enjoy its results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honor.
Just some thoughts I have about life :)
Have a great day!!
