Today we looked at wisdom in James 3:13-18. Starting with false wisdom, James describes it as earthly, unspiritual, and “of the devil.” In contrast, wisdom that comes from heaven is pure, peace-loving, and sincere, among many other things.
What does it mean for the Lord to be our Shepherd? According to David in Psalm 23, it means that we shall never be in want of anything. We will be made to slow down, quiet down, and sit down. Our souls will be restored and whole, like they were designed to be from the beginning. We shall not fear evil or death – no matter what we’re facing. Many of us know the Psalm… Let’s make sure we know the Shepherd.
