On James 3:15-17


On James 3:15-17


Wise on Early Paths

The wisdom comes to us after many steps,
and when filled with Jesus and aware.
This wisdom comes to us as we live, and we
live righteously and humbly.
This wisdom often comes to those mature,
but we rejoice when it fills our youth.
The life, lived at any age, and the way,
walked humbly and faithfully, change our faces,
change our minds, fill our spirits.
We are not now, nor have we ever been
alone. We are filled.
This life is gentle and peaceful;
it is calming to those who cross our way.
This life is obedient, and in wisdom, we
walk the way daily-faithfully.
This life is justice- and mercy-filled,
and some days hard to till and weed.
This life is just and sincerely offered.
This wisdom guides our life.

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
