One thing I’ve noticed about wise people – they don’t talk as much as I do. That might be actually pretty easy to do. After all, my job is sales and marketing. I think the real game changer is that the reason wise people don’t talk as much is because they are listening. I could definitely stand to improve in this area. James speaks to this pretty straight forward and clear. Check this out…13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. 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. 18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness. (James 3:13-18 NIV)
