Impartial and sincere

I am working on memorizing a section of scripture and thought it would be fun to work on it with you as well!  My friend Brit and I do a boot camp every morning, but wanted to encourage each other spiritually as well.  We are memorizing James 3:13-18.  The part that stands out to me was the encouragement we receive in verse 17 that talks of Godly wisdom.  Let us know what you are reading, memorizing, etc...  Have a great weekend!

Who is wise and understanding among you?  By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom.14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish  ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth.  15 This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.  16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.  17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.  18 And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
On a side note; cut peonies are another one of my summer favorites!
