Terri Maxwell but I have so much more to learn.
As a result I am digging deep into the book of James to see what it really says and how it applies to me.
Last night I re-read James 3. The verse that spoke to me was James 3:17,18
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure, then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.
I often pray for wisdom, wisdom to know what my children need, to be creative with discipline, to teach God's word, to be a better wife and mother.
Reading James 3:17 tells me that my wisdom is so far off the mark I don't even come close to the target.
We have a picture in our bathroom that says "As ye sow, so shall ye reap."
If I want peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit from my children I first need to be an example of those things.
Lord, Please help me to have wisdom that comes from heaven. Use me as an example of your love to my husband, my family, and all those that I come into contact with today. Amen
