    The seven contrary virtues might be a good start!

    Humility,against pride,

    Kindness against envy,

    Abstinence against gluttony,

    Chastity against lust,

    Patience against anger,

    Liberality against greed,

    Diligence against sloth.

    "But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy" ( James 3:17).

    Let's consider these pillars as the practical actions or way of life that we are pursuing. We'll also look at the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 (the outward expression of wisdom), the beatitudes in Matthew 5:3-12 (the character traits of a wise person), and Peter's list of qualities in 2 Peter 1:5-8 (the spiritual disciplines of the wise Christ-follower).

    Comment: I think James is speaking of our "spiritual" house; not actual construction of a house.

    In our bodies we are the Temple of God. We should be mindful about what we bring into it (not defile it with other kinds of religion that do not come from the Bible).
