Providence 365, Week 35: What is Wisdom?

This is Barbara, here with Week 35 of our year of Providence.  Today, I’ve chosen James 3:17 for our verse:

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy.

Do you ever find yourself at a loss as to what to do in a given situation?  I know that I have.  Perhaps there is no “good” option, or perhaps there are too many equally good choices.  Or maybe your mind is just blank!

How do you know what is the wise thing to do?  How do we become wise?

God has graciously given us the ability to know what is wise.  The Proverbs are full of words of wisdom, telling us what wisdom looks like and where it can be found.  The book of James in the New Testament is all about wisdom as well.  We read that wisdom has certain characteristics, that it is gentle and full of grace.  In fact, wisdom shares many of the same features as love.  Hummm… 

So, this week, I am asking you to focus on wisdom, looking for the signs that God in His Providence has placed in your life, visible if you are attentive, there to assist you as you make decisions and choices.  And, when you’ve made your layouts, Pam and I would love it if you’d come and post in our gallery and forum.  We want to rejoice with you as God reveals Himself!
