15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
People claim to have found wisdom here on earth. They know wisdom of how to cheat, steal, and lie without getting caught. Politicians will lie and cheat thier way into office and sales men will lie and cheat you to steal you money. It is a false wisdom. The wisdom for earthy gain is not the wisdom a Christian should be seeking. Christians should seek the wisdom of God. Christians should seek the wisdom of how to walk daily in a manner that is pleasing to God. That wisdom is loving a righteous life that will give you more of a reward than any amount of money. That reward is eternal life in the presence of our God. So, seek the wisdom from above and the best way to do that is read your Bible and pray to God for guidance.
