A Word to the Wise


Life is challenging. Just when you think you have things figured out, you realize that you don't. Fires devastate forests. Hurricanes hammer communities. Loved ones get sick. Schools switch from hybrid to virtual (or vice versa) What do we do? Where do we turn for wisdom? Is it to Oprah? Dr. Phil? Uncle Jim or Aunt Judy? While these are all good choices, the Bible teaches us that there is one SOURCE for wisdom. This source is more available than Oprah. it's more consistent than Dr. Phil. It's even more reliable than Uncle Jim or Aunt July. 6 For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; 7 he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk blamelessly, 8 guarding the paths of justice and preserving the way of his faithful ones. - Proverbs 2:6-8 Now, there's nothing wrong with seeking the counsel of wise people. They are blessed by God. However, in those times when competing voices are deafening and opposing opinions are confusing, turn to the Lord. Trust in the Lord with all your heart. God offers wisdom for every facet of life. Whether it's family or finances, health or politics, we can turn to the LORD for guidance and direction and truth. 9 Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; 10 for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; "let the wise listen and add to their learning" - Proverbs 2:9-10 ~ Pastor Caleb
