If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
(James 1:5 (NIV))
What do you consider as wisdom?
The world has one definition of wisdom and God has another.
What is it that you ask God for?
Do you ask for wisdom to better understand God’s Word, His Laws, and His love or do you ask for wisdom that will grow your wealth and stature in this world?
It is a matter of the heart.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
(Matthew 6:21 (NIV))
What is it that you treasure?
What is it that you desire?
But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
(Joshua 24:15 (NIV))
If we truly serve the Lord, then the wisdom that we seek will be to His glory!
