James 1:5-8 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him...
I love it when I open God's Word and what I read gives me straight forward, simple to understand instruction. So as I jumped into James this morning, I smiled because James gets right to the point, telling us that if we lack wisdom (and honestly, who doesn't?) we need to ask God who is generous in providing it. Thank you, God!
So, I totally understand what James is saying, yet there are still times I don't do this, and I'm guessing I'm not alone on this one. So what's going on when we don't ask God for His wisdom? Is it forgetfulness, a busyness issue, pride, control, what? Try and recall a specific past situation and do a little assessing. What do you need God's wisdom for today? Tami
