James 3:13-18

Ever since Wednesday at Ladies Bible Class I have been thinking about these verses, especially the last 2.

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Is your wisdom heavenly or demonic?
Looks like these are the only two choices.
As I exam my "wisdom" I am ashamed at how much of it is earthly.
