Peacemaker or Divider?
Wisdom is valuable & takes intentionality. The Christian life is simple but not easy. Communal life brings friction. Loving others is simple but not easy in practice, we don’t always do well. You can have everything in the world, but if your relationships are in disarray then life is miserable. Getting along with others is important. James says in verse 18, "Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness." If I am the smartest man on earth, have degrees, wealth, and anything I want, but I can’t get along with others - life really is not much good.
