Wisdom Applied leads to #FaithinAction

The New Testament book of James teaches us that applying wisdom means:

  • That we should live, not just learn the Bible [James 1:22]
  • That pure religion cares for the orphan and widow [James 1:27]
  • That loving our neighbor is the “royal law” [James 2:8]
  • That mercy triumphs over judgement [James 2:13]
  • That faith without deeds is worthless [James 2:16, 20]
  • That knowledge should result in humble deeds [James 3:13]
  • That wisdom from heaven is full of mercy [James 3:15-17]
  • That failing to do “good” is sin [James 4:17}]
  • That in our neglect we become oppressors [James 5:1-6]

(list found in the Barefoot Church Primer by Brandon Hatmaker)

“It may be simpler to live as if our actions and words function independently of each other, but one thing’s for certain – our observers never separate the two” ~ The Barefoot Church Primer
