Wisdom from above is first pure

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. James 3:17-18

peace loving
full of mercy and good fruit
impartial and sincere

Jesus showed how to live these out.  Wisdom that comes from heaven. 

Jesus came from heaven and modeled these for us.

Pure- He was the sinless, spotless lamb.

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29

 The sacrifice was to be a young lamb, depicting innocence.                           It was to be pure.

The verse states, "first pure".  It is the most important thing! There is no wisdom without this. 

How pure is your life? What things are contaminating your witness?

Spotless Lamb of God, I confess to you that I can not do it alone.  My sins are too great to atone for. Your word says that you will wash me and make me white as snow. Cleanse me and surely I will be clean. Today I ask for your guidance to change my language, thoughts and actions. May my life Reflect your purity.
