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.
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:

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)
