The Wisdom of the "WHY"


James 1:19-21The Message (MSG)

Act on What You Hear

19-21 Post this at all the intersections, dear friends: Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue, and let anger straggle along in the rear. God’s righteousness doesn’t grow from human anger. So throw all spoiled virtue and cancerous evil in the garbage. In simple humility, let our gardener, God, landscape you with the Word, making a salvation-garden of your life.

The wisdom for which we have asked God develops in the "doing" of how He has instructed us. The law of God is a heavy weight and burden as long as we see it as a rule that we have to obey. But, when by doing, we find that the law is God's loving guidance toward what is constructive in building our life, it becomes a delight. It is not in the knowing of the rules but in the understanding of the "why" that life flourishes. Remember, sin's wages are lifelessness. God's gift is life.

Please feel free to post your suggestions.
