Sharing Some Thoughts – Lesson 8

Is there a day that goes by when you do not feel the need for more wisdom than you have on your own?  As long as you and I are in “that awkward period between birth and death” (unknown source), there will be constant reminders that our own resources and intelligence are inadequate.   Knowledge, experience, position, wealth, and health will not enable us to consistently make the best choices and to do what is right.  There really is only one ultimate source of wisdom, isn’t there?  It’s found in the God who made me, who loves me, and who has told me in His Word that real wisdom is available when I bow down in humility to acknowledge my need for His perspective and insight.  “Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding”.  To Fear-the-Lord is to “trust in Him with all my heart rather than leaning on my own understanding.”  (Proverbs 3:5, 13)
