Hard Wisdom

“In life, all good things come hard, but wisdom is the hardest to come by.”
-Lucille Ball

Sin comes effortless, but often wisdom is learned through a series of trial and error, otherwise known as ‘the school of hard knocks.’  Sometimes a good God must first break you of the bad, whether be selfishness, vices, or idolatry.  God then begins to transform you into the person He created you to be: selfless, pure, and godly.

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.  -James 3:17 (NKJV)
