BE very careful, then, how you live–not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.” – Ephesians 5:15-16.
In his book “The Book of Gratitudes: An Encounter between Life and Faith,” Pastor Pablo Andinach tells the following: “A man was travelling through the desert. He was hungry, thirsty and tired when he found a tree that provided abundant shade, delicious fruit, and a spring ran under it.
The man ate of the fruit, drank of the water and rested in the shade.
When he was ready to resume his journey he turned toward the tree and said:
“Tree, how shall I bless you? Shall I bless you with sweet fruit? Your fruit is already sweet. Shall I bless you with abundant shade? Your shade is already abundant. Shall I ask for a spring to run under you? A spring is already running under you. There is one thing with which I can bless you: May it be God’s will for all the trees that come from your seed to be like you.”
Godly wisdom starts with God and His Word. Today in prayer, thank Jesus that we can obtain wisdom as we look to Him and to the Bible to guide us in all situations.
“The truly wise are those whose souls are in Christ.” – Ambrose of Milan
God’s Word: “Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a “fool” so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: ‘He catches the wise in their craftiness'” – 1 Corinthians 3:18-19.
