Don’t Desecrate My Holy Name


17-18 Real wisdom, God’s wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. You can develop a healthy, robust community that lives right with God and enjoy its results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honor.

– James 3:17-18

The Message Version (MSG)


17-18 真正的智慧,或屬神的智慧,是從聖潔的生活開始,其在人身上最明顯之處,就是能夠使人和睦相處。智慧使人溫柔、講理,會讓人流露出恩慈和祝福,不會忽冷忽熱,也不會以不同的嘴臉待不同的人。你們只有努力與人和睦,彼此尊重,才能成為健康、活潑的群體,在神面前蒙悅納,享受和平的善果。

— 雅各書三17-18
