Today's topic on wisdom is something I think as wives, we desperately need. I know, in my own situation, I feel like I need to be in control and with that, comes me making my own decisions. I lack the effort to ask God to guide me with wisdom, even in my everyday life. I'll be honest, I ask him for wisdom when it comes to tough things in life that I don't feel I can do on my own, but I don't ask for His wisdom about everyday things, like raising my son.
I learned today that God's wisdom trumps all other wisdom and makes other wisdom look foolish (including my own!). It's the only true wisdom and it's worth is incomparable. I also found it interesting and awesome that if you desire God's wisdom, ask for it and he will give it generously. I also liked how Jennifer mentions that if we strive to seek His wisdom and live more like Him, we will gain wisdom through the process of transformation. It's coming full circle!
In what instances have you acted on your own wisdom instead of God's wisdom?
I feel like I've taken my own reigns in raising my son, when I should be seeking God's wisdom in doing that. My son is 18 months old and is not talking yet, so I have been trying "everything in the book" to guide him to begin talking. I think this is one I need God's wisdom for.
