“…the wisdom that comes from above leads us to be pure, friendly, gentle, sensible, kind, helpful, genuine, and sincere. When peacemakers plant seeds of peace, they will harvest justice.” (James 3: 17-18, Contemporary English Version)
If we are to truly be peacemakers, not merely those seeking comfortable lives for ourselves, then we can’t go it alone. To be active participants in the world in a way that is healing and progressive and good, we must rely on something greater than our own ingenuity, wits, and will.
We need to listen for God’s wisdom. We must open our hearts, ready to receive the guidance that divine Love reveals to us. This true intelligence is not only smart thinking. It is power, for it proceeds from Love, from Truth, from the very Source of Life. This higher wisdom leads us to be our best, to be who we truly are, and this has a harmonizing influence in our world.
Purity, friendliness, gentleness, sincerity, helpfulness, etc., are qualities that come from an honest desire and from selflessness. When we come with God’s intention, rather than personal goals and fears and biases, the work we do plants seeds that can grow, that can bring out not only a better experience for ourselves, but a foundation of justice and peace for our world as well.
