Emily Everswick

Hi!  My name is Emily and I am married to Rick, the GO Pastor at HCBC. We've been married 22 years and have two children ages 17 and 14.  We all enjoy any kind of adventure together, but I mostly enjoy the kind that keeps me on my feet. Being catapulted, loopty-looed, or dropped are not my favorites, therefore theme parks are not my friends! I teach third grade at Veritas Academy where I get to be around amazing kids and learn lots of awesome stuff together.  I'm excited to get to share with you today.

James 3:13-18

Two Kinds of Wisdom

13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. 18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
