Not because I am wise. But because I want to learn to be wiser. (That doesn’t feel like it is grammatically correct, but well.. I tend to miss things like that so..)
We are going to study Proverbs together in these days. So you guess it. Proverbs 2 corresponds with Day 2. So take a second, grab your Bible or the Bible on your smart phone and read Proverbs 2. Then come back.
It’s taking me a while to get this whole twitter thing. First of all, they limit my characters. I mean, frankly I can get wordy friends. So I have a hard time with that.
I didn’t understand the #thing either? Basically you just #mashwordstogetherthatdon’tmakeanysenseifyouaskme
But I want to be trendy– and with it.. and well i think there are awesome people you can follow on twitter. I have even been apart of some twitter parties, which have been super fun.
Well I want to invite you to the #wisdom party. I think there are so many categories of things we need wisdom in.
They can range from the very practical to the very important deep emotional questions, like ” is He THE one”, how do I recover from this emotional baggage, how can I let go of THAT thing, can I ever be free?
Wisdom for things like what job do I take, what church do I go to, what diet do I start on Monday, is it ok for me to have that 700th cup of coffee or should I go on a walk instead?
I love this in Proverbs 2:6, “ For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright, he is a shield to those who walk in integrity.
I want wisdom. So I have to chose to follow the Lord like I chose to follow someone on twitter. ( I wonder what clever name God would chose for His twitter handle) . And I need to take Him at His word.
James 1:5 promises that if I lack wisdom He gives generously and without reproach. What a gift.
