Why Do We Fight

James 4:1-6

Conflict can be healthy when the focus is on finding Godly solutions and the participants are willing to seek and follow God in these issues (Pr 27:17 Iron Sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another)

Conflict is destructive when the focus is on getting our way and we don’t care what effect it has on others

What is the source of this ungodly conflict?  Why Do We fight?

Wisdom From Above

Wisdom and knowledge is not the same thing.  Knowledge is the possession of information, facts ideas etc.  Wisdom is the ability to make sensible decisions and judgments based on knowledge, it is skill for living

Here James says contrasts two types of wisdom – Earthly and Godly.  Earthly wisdom is often applauded by the world but God wants us to exhibit Godly wisdom.  So what’s the difference between the two?

Words Can Hurt

Posted by wisdomfromtheword in DefaultTag

"Sticks and Stones may break my bones but Words will never hurt me," is a retort heard on the playground when I was young but the problem is, it isn't true.  Words do hurt.  They can hurt badly and the hurt can last a lifetime.  In this message James warns us that we need to be very careful with our words.
