“This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy”James 3:15-17
There is a way that the world operates. A way the world has designed things to be and this is what Paul called the “wisdom of this world.” It is the “modus operandi” of the world. By “the world” I mean the system of the world which is headed by Satan. The Bible says concerning this kind of wisdom, that “This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish” (James 3:15). The wisdom of this world is foolishness in the sight of God.
The danger is that the wisdom of this world often presents to you nice-sounding; common sense, savvy principles which appear very appealing to the senses. They sound like good advice, but as far as God is concerned, they are foolishness. For example, the wisdom of this world says; “If you want to have a lot, then keep what you have and save it till you get rich”; but the wisdom of God says “It is better to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35). The wisdom of this world says “The flu is in town so be careful when you are around sick people, so you don’t get infected” but the wisdom of God says, “They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover” (Mark 16:18).
As a child of God, you have to be careful not to get carried away with the wisdom of this world. The Bible tells you to guard your heart (Proverbs 4:23). Don’t allow just any information to get into your mind; study God’s Word so you will be full of the wisdom of God .
