What does it mean to be smart? If we look at how most of the world’s education system is structured, it somehow seems to be about “measured knowledge”. We go to school to study and memorize a lot of knowledge and then take a test to see how much we could keep in our brains. If you were anything like me, as soon as the test was over, the information that was memorized was emptied out on the pages as well, long forgotten making more room to store information for the next test! Thus the revolving process of “Easy Come and Easy Go” or perhaps “Garbage In and Garbage Out” (I meant information in and information out!)
The Bible has something to say about knowledge as well, but from another aspect that includes application of knowledge to your life! It’s called WISDOM! This week in verse 5 of James 1, we will dig in to see what it means for us to ask God for wisdom and how that can help us along in life! Hint: Faith isn’t just about sitting back and simply studying God, it’s about putting on our boots and doing like God!
Have you taken a look at the book of James this week? It’s just a few pages and in 15-20 minutes, you should be able to read the entire book! In fact, I challenge you to read it once every week until we are finished! I promise you that it’s worth your time and effort!
Looking forward to seeing you at LIFT this week!
In His grip and grace,
Corey and Tanya
