Need Wisdom? Want Peace?

 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.  But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth.  Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.  For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.  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 reap a harvest of righteousness.
James 3:13-18

Don't look for the definition in Wikipedia...they misspell words and you get the world's wisdom and every other belief as well.  The Christian's view is presented and it's interesting to note what other faiths believe but they are not the kind that will bring peace to the world.  Many of the world's sins would vanish if we were less envious and selfish and more peace-loving and considerate, et al.
