    Was preaching yesterday and these verses hopped out at me-

    James 3:13-18

    Jas 3:13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom.
    14 But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth.
    15 This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.
    16 For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.
    17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, 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.

    I will let each of you make your own application to the subject matter at hand. I trust that I have.
