Word Wednesday .::51

Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. Sharing Scripture with each other is like iron sharpening iron. Leave a comment and share a scripture that has impacted you this week.

Here's the scripture that stuck this week:

James 3:16-18 ESV

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.

Wow...definitely words to live by. Watch out for jealousy and pride. They not only destroy you, but they also hurt those around you. Be a peace maker. Good stuff.

What's your Word?

I was just thinking about that today. Once pride takes root, the love for others diminishes.
