The Law of Intuition Part 17
Godly Wisdom vs. Worldly-James 3:13-18
James speaks of two kinds of wisdom: the wisdom from above and the wisdom from below. Good leadership intuition always springs from the wisdom from above. Notice the following differences.
|Wisdom from Above||Wisdom from Below|
|1. Gentle and generous||1. Selfishly ambitious and jealous|
|2. Speaks the truth||2. Speaks lies and deceives|
|3. Pure and organized||3. Disorderly and demonic|
|4. Results in peace||4. Results in disharmony|
|5. Reasonable||5. Self-centered|
|6. The fruit of love and mercy.||6. The fruit of strife and competition|
Spirit of Behavior-1 John 4:1-8
Leaders are to read the spirit behind a person’s behavior to sense how ready he or she may be to contribute to the team. Leaders look for a spirit that: confesses Christ as Lord (1 John 4:1-3); agrees with and believes the truth (4:5, 6); and loves others (4:7, 8).
