Context Readings

The Wisdom That Comes Down From Above

13 Who [then] is the wise and understanding person among you? He should show by his good conduct [that he has] deeds of gentleness [stemming] from wisdom. 14 But if you people have bitter jealousy and rivalry in your hearts, do not be arrogant [over it] and deny the truth. 15 This "wisdom" is not the kind that comes from [God] above, but is earthly, unspiritual and demonic [i.e., it is motivated by an evil spirit and not the Holy Spirit].
