Wisdom Deficiency

If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him. (James 1:5 AMP)

I’m often amazed by people’s lack of wisdom. Last week, I watched a movie based on a true story of an old monarch, who, believe it or not, needed counsel from a young leader on what to do during a crisis. What seemed like common sense to the young leader wasn’t so common for the old monarch. No wonder when told to ask for anything he wanted, King Solomon asked for wisdom (see 1 Kings 3). And in today’s scripture, the apostle James also invites us to ask for this essential gift, “If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.” God is willing to give us wisdom, but are we bold enough to ask for it? Many problems in life could be solved if we followed James’ advice and asked for wisdom. So ask boldly, ask daily.

We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them. -Albert Einstein
