For were you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
– James 3:16 (NIV)
True wisdom can be measured by the depth of a person’s character. Just as you can identify a tree by the type of fruit it produces, you can evaluate your wisdom by the way you act. Foolishness leads to disorder, but wisdom leads to peace and goodness. Careful, winsome speech and wise, loving words are the seeds of peace. God loves peacemakers.
