Wise Gentleness vs. Foolish Anger

I recently read James 3:13 and was struck by the concept of “the gentleness that wisdom brings”. People who are truly wise have a Biblical confidence which is expressed by a gentle spirit. The opposite is true about those who are foolish. Abraham Lincoln said, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt”. The foolish speak with a brashness that shows a lack of wisdom. I know it can be hard to remain silent and there are times we need to speak up. The wise will speak with gentleness.

I want to seek gentle, Biblical wisdom. Nothing else is truly wise.
