When You Want Wisdom

One evening a mother was busily straining vegetables to feed her infant daughter. Stomping into the kitchen, her husband demanded, “Hurry up. I want to eat, too.”

Exasperated, she dumped a whole container of peas into a strainer, walked into the living room where he was sitting, placed them in his lap and asked, “How would you like to do this three times a day, seven days a week for who knows how long?”

The next day when he went to his cannery, Dan Gerber could not forget the experience from the night before. As he thought about what had happened and about his wife’s problem, he suddenly had an idea for something new to put into cans – strained baby food.

There are many times when life seems to place problems in our laps that require the wisdom that only comes from God. In fact, He gave us an entire book of the Bible that provides wonderful wisdom, Proverbs. It is ours for the taking.

God gives us His wisdom because it is greater than any of life’s problems, His strength can overcome every weakness and His power can get us through every difficulty.

Prayer: I am so thankful, Lord, that You specialize in solutions. May I constantly turn to Your Word for the wisdom I need for the problems I face. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Scripture for Today: James 1:5-8
