“If any of you lacks wisdom...”
The inevitable trials we meet along the way blur our vision. They make life confusing and threaten to fill us with doubt. The Lord knows this, and that’s why he inspired James to exhort us to ask him for wisdom.
That’s what our text this Sunday, James 1:5–8, is all about. We lack wisdom, every single one of us. Even the strongest and most intelligent Christians can make ridiculous decisions and lose perspective so easily. So we need God! We need his wisdom desperately! All of us do! And the good news is that he is a good Father who is eager to give wisdom generously to his children.
Our plan this Sunday will be to consider what it means to get wisdom. Take some time to read James 1:5–8 and consider memorizing it. Pray for God to open our eyes and grant us the Spirit of wisdom so that we might know him better (Ephesians 1:18).
We’ll also come to the Lord’s Table as a faith family. Let’s examine our hearts and remember afresh the grace of the gospel and our need for Christ.
With you in Christ,
