🔴 There’s Wisdom For That!

Guiding Scripture: “For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding” (Proverbs 2:6 NLT).

As an older millennial who grew up without cell phones, it never ceases to amaze me how many products, services, and resources are now available to us through devices that fit in the palm of our hands. Want food on your doorstep in 30 minutes or less? There’s an app for that. Want some soothing background noise to help you sleep at night? There’s an app for that, too. There are literally thousands of apps for just about anything your mind can dream up, with new ones being created all the time.
And yet, as sophisticated as our technology has become, there are still certain things it can’t provide. Things like peace, hope, and a sense of purpose. You can’t download those, no matter how hard you look and how many buttons you press. There are plenty of wealthy and famous people who will admit they’ve tried and failed to do it.

Wisdom is one of those things you can’t download or buy. Of course, many people believe they can. Maybe that’s because we’re surrounded by more information than ever before. Data, however, is different from wisdom. While data can come from almost anywhere, the Bible clarifies that we as Christians should seek wisdom from God.

God’s wisdom is vastly different from ours.

The Bible tells us that the wisdom which comes from heaven is pure, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere (James 3:17). It is more priceless than gold (Proverbs 17:17). Not only that, but God promises to give it to us freely if we ask Him (James 1:5).
Just think about that for a moment. The God of all creation—who has existed for untold years before any of us came into being—that same God is willing to pour out as much of His infinite wisdom as we need, whenever we need it. How many of us really slow down long enough to take advantage of that generous offer?

Let’s go back to the phone idea for a moment.

Imagine that someone had downloaded dozens of the most sophisticated apps in existence onto your phone, all designed to help you live your life with more focus and efficiency…and the only one you wanted to use was the calculator. How effective would you be in your daily routine? How limited would you be in terms of the tasks you needed to complete?

It’s time for us to stop operating in a limited capacity when we serve an unlimited God.

He has made all of His knowledge and understanding available to us, and all we need to do is seek Him for it. Are you willing to do that today? When will you look at your problems and circumstances and say, “There’s wisdom for that,” and ask God to supply it?

“As believers, we should approach everything with the cross in mind. We can ask ourselves: How do I serve Christ, the verticle perspective, and how do I serve His people the horizontal perspective. If one of those things is off-balance, guess what? We feel the heavyweight of carrying a burden that God wanted us to work through with Him. Be aware of how God leads you through His divine cosmic Holy Spirit and not lean into the temporary satisfaction of emotional winning.

A Daily Purpose

Bible Study & Devotional Day 43

🔴 All Are Welcome!

Guiding Scripture: Proverbs 9:6 Leave your simple ways, and live,
and walk in the way of insight.”

When we plan to have guests our home gets a thorough cleansing; everything from the bathrooms to the fish tank is cleaned. Extra care goes to the guest bedroom, and we restock all the pantry items. Fresh flowers, chocolates, and scented candles amp up the ambiance.

We are ready to entertain!


But our guests are critical and self-righteous, picking at all our efforts. We did not do enough. The overtures were not received with love, and we missed some details.

  • Criticism is the expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes.
  • Self-righteousness is being convinced of one’s righteousness, especially in contrast with others’ actions and beliefs: narrow-mindedly moralistic.
  • Refine to improve (something) by making small changes.

God grants wisdom to those who diligently seek Him.

If we do everything unto the Lord, the criticism we receive has a strainer attached. We can evaluate what we did and adjust accordingly without becoming bitter.

As Christ-followers, if we never minister to those wallowing in their sin of self-righteousness, how will they be transformed?

How do we help? By sharing our redemption stories, leading others to the solid teaching of God’s Word, and not withholding tools. We may not know the exact spiritual make-up of our guests, but God does.

Wisdom Teaches:


We have a responsibility to be prepared for the coming of Christ. If we stay ready, humble, and lean into our Lord’s wisdom, we can enjoy fellowship with Him. His character’s truth reveals that He is a God of order, justice, mercy, grace, and love. When He prepares His feast and calls you to sit at the table, will you criticize?
