I love the book of James in the Bible. When I am in between Bible studies, I typically turn there for a spiritual pick me up. (read, spiritual punch in the gut) I was reading there this morning and these verses are worth sharing!
"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."
Thinking of self=every evil thing (sin)
Wisdom from above (prayer & bible reading) =PURE PEACE
No choice necessary!
