December 3/4, 2016: The Gift of Wisdom

If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God, who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and it will be given you.- James  1:5 (NRSV)

God is generous in giving. Wisdom is a special gift that God longs for us to ask for- and that He gives us freely.

During Advent sometimes people display bumper stickers or wear t-shirts that say, “Wise Men Still Seek Him.”

In the Lord’s Prayer we pray, “Thy will be done.”  How seriously do we really take that petition when we pray?

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7 (NRSV)

How can we seek God and ask for His wisdom today?
