Wise and Understanding

13 Who is wise and understanding among you ?
Let him show by his good conduct
  that his deeds are done in gentleness of wisdom.

14 But if you have bitter jealousy
and selfish ambition in your heart ,
  don't boast and don't lie against the truth.
15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above ,
but is earthly , sensual , and demonic.

16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition are ,
there is confusion and every evil deed.

17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure ,
then peaceful , gentle , reasonable ,
  full of mercy and good fruits ,
    without partiality , and without hypocrisy.

18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace
by those who make peace.     James 3 , 13-18
