The 11th Hour (TJL 5.4)

This week, you’ll read an assortment of verses commonly used to discuss suicide.  Read these as you continue to think about Judas, and the possibility that God gave him grace.

Monday                                                                         James 3:13-17

For those who struggle with depression, suicide sometimes feels like the only way out. Today’s passage, not ordinarily used for suicidal issues, reveals a duality of wisdom. Some “wisdom” does not come from heaven but is “earthly, unspiritual, and demonic.” However, wisdom that comes from God is pure and reflects the fruit of the spirit. Discernment between these two wisdoms is key. How do you tell whether or not the wisdom you hear in your mind and heart truly come from God?
