“The kind of wisdom a person possesses will be revealed by the kind of life she lives.”
– John MacArthur-
My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you,
So that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding;
Yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding,
If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.
For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk uprightly.
If you’re like me…you can’t get enough wisdom! I think praying for wisdom in my life is one of my top 10 reoccurring prayer requests. This week we are going to learn about two types of wisdom, Godly wisdom vs. worldly wisdom. Which type of wisdom do you feel you are listening to right now in your life? By the end of the week you will be able to discern if the wisdom you are receiving is Godly or worldly by looking at the characteristics of each type. James is going to explain to us this week what wisdom looks like in action! I can’t wait to get started with you!
