Jen Wilkin, Contrasting Worldy Wisdom with Godly Wisdom

See the source image“Worldly wisdom self-promotes. Godly wisdom elevates others. Worldly wisdom seeks the highest place. Godly wisdom seeks the lowest place. Worldly wisdom avoids the mirror of the Word. Godly wisdom submits to the mirror of the Word. Worldly wisdom trusts in earthly possessions. Godly wisdom trusts in treasures in heaven. Worldly wisdom boasts. Godly wisdom is slow to speak. Worldly wisdom says trials will crush you. Godly wisdom says trials will nature you. Worldly wisdom says temptation is no big deal. Godly wisdom says temptation indulged lead to death. Worldly wisdom says, ‘Seeing is believing.’ Godly wisdom says, ‘Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed’ (John 20:29). Worldly wisdom wields might. Godly wisdom works in meekness.” (In His Image, pg. 139)
