Worship Guide 7.1.18

We come to James 3:13-18 this week, where James presents to us the kind of wisdom available to us as children of God.  It is a beautiful, transformational kind of wisdom, and may take you by surprise.  As you prepare to worship with your church family this weekend, read through the text, think through the questions, and begin to practice a posture of meekness, humility, and openness to whatever God may have in store for you.

Questions to Consider:

1. What is your vision of "the good life"?  
2. How do you typically think of wisdom?  Do you view it as a tool for getting ahead, or for building up and loving others well?
3. What do you believe it would take to reap a "harvest of righteousness"?  What do you think that even means?
