A Daily Devotion for Friday, June 17


James 3:17


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.

This verse is a gem for me today! It points Out that peace is not just a feel-good commodity. It is part of being a Christian in this world. As a Christian we are seeking peace, seeking harmony. This desire for peace shapes our lives and directs our behavior, and is the work of the Holy Spirit. No one likes the word ”submissive”, but in our day to day dealings with others, being submissive is often the way to keep peace, and this can be a sign of strength, not weakness or fear.

Holy Lord, thank you for your wisdom today, and bringing me this understanding. I will hold it close. Amen
