It's been interesting, to say the least, to read the news lately--it's been a parade of puzzling decisions and bizarre actions by national figures. I have to admit that some of these reports have tempted me to slap my head and say out loud, "What were you thinking?" But really, the capacity for such delusional thinking exists in all of us. Like toddlers who "hide" while only covering their own eyes, we think we're not as obvious as the next guy when we do bone-headed things.
- God's grace toward sinners gives us confidence to seek wisdom.
- We must choose wisdom.
- Wisdom comes from God. Solomon asked for wisdom, but it is God who bestowed it.
- Wisdom is for living. It is knowledge in action. It is put on display when we make choices and perform actions.
- You are only as wise as your next decision. You prove your wisdom in what you choose today.
