Do the Word
Apply the Wisdom that Unites Heaven and Earth
James is obviously not talking about earning God’s blessings through works, he’s talking about walking in wisdom. To the legalistic this sounds like the focus is obedience, to the idealist this sounds like performance, but wisdom and maturity put God’s word into practice.
God’s blessing is not a wage to be earned, it’s a promise to be harvested. Wisdom is the practical application of knowledge. Our job is the sow the word in our hearts so that it can be led by the inner voice of God. So the wisdom and understanding will come together and by grace we’ll see the blessing of the Lord.
