{Glory Art} Scripture Challenge #4 - Wisdom

Hello, my friends!

I hope your week is going well!
A big welcome to my newest friends!

I have my next Scripture Challenge tag to share with you today. 
I'm a few days late with this one but no longer behind.

The word we were given this time is "wisdom".
You can read Patter's great devotional on the subject HERE.

I think that the world's definition of wisdom is somewhat different than God's definition.
The world sees wisdom as something that comes from education; 
more of a learning or being book smart. 

I think that wisdom that comes from God is taking the knowledge that we have and using it appropriately.
I tried to depict this with my tag design and my chosen Scripture verse.

I used an adorable Sushi Doll called "I Love Nerds" that you can find HERE.
He's a sweet little geek, and I have surrounded him with books.
He actually reminds me of my little brother when he was young! lol 
The Scripture verse, in Proverbs 3:21, instructs him on what he should do with his knowledge:

"My son, preserve sound judgement and discernment,
do not let them out of your sight."

Such sound instruction for each one of us, don't you think?

Here's my tag:

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Image: Sushi Dolls - I Love Nerds,
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Embossing Folder: Darice - School Books;
Stamp: Impression Obsession - Book Shelves;
Ink: Stampin' Up - Basic Brown;
Ribbon: Stampin' Up;
Alpha Stickers: Prima.

One more Scripture verse I'd like to share with you is found in James 1:5:

"If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God,
who gibes generously to all without finding fault,
and it will be given to you."

 I hope the rest of your week is full of joy! :o)
