When we’re free from pursuing cultural goals or believing conventional wisdom, we can concentrate on pleasing God by seeking peace and being gentle with others.
Popular wisdom overlooks those who defer to others, give to charities and offer forgiveness. But our true worth is defined by our relationship with God; it comes from being His children. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. (James 3:17)
