James 1:5

 If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God, who
gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and it will be given you.


Reflection by Geoff Heilhecker 

Wisdom – According to the dictionary it is: “the quality or state of being wise; knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action; sagacity, discernment, or insight.” 

I reflect on the word wisdom and
how I feel I am lacking, that if I simply ask God I will receive it. But I have
to ask but did I already get the answer and I just didn’t hear it. I reflect
back in my childhood when my grandfather would share those moments with me that
felt so boring (ah youth) and cast aside. One passage that I recall him saying
to me was “Wisdom comes in many forms and only when you work for something do
you get it”.  

Jesus passed his wisdom
through what was said and his actions which ended with the ultimate physical
price; did he give us wisdom in his actions? He felt at the time it was
necessary to go to that length to pass his wisdom on to us all.



I ask for wisdom and more each day in my prayers and
hope for the ability to pass along to those around me the opportunity to share
and expand. I wish you all a blessed day and the world is available to you to
fulfill your life. Amen!
