Deeds show one to be wise or not. Wisdom is not theoretical, but practical. Life in Christ is not for the cloister, but for the community, not for the desert but for the city. Wisdom is not a Sunday suit, but is at home in a Monday marketplace.

But wisdom is vindicated by her deeds.
Matthew 11:19b NET

The Jewish authorities complained about the differences between Jesus and John. But each one had his moment and objective.

Do what is right by God, and what is right for the situation.

This is true wisdom, and it will become evident.

Father, the richness and fullness of your wisdom defies comprehension, but it is part of your revelation. Make us wise and discerning, that your presence may become evident in each moment. Because Christ is our wisdom. Amen.

Hold this thought: Wisdom is doing what is right by God, not what people think.
