16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. 18 And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. (James 3:16-18, ESV)

What is the source of the chaos and disorder that we live among? Envy and selfish ambition. People only look out for themselves and their own. God’s wisdom is different because it has us focus on others. Being considerate of others, impartial and sincere. That’s the look of a peacemaker.

Prayer: Lord, let me live at peace with those around me.
