We need wisdom in the decisions we must make. Many of our decisions will not be between right and wrong. They will not be a choice between legal and illegal or between moral and immoral. There will be no command you can find in Scripture that applies to that situation. So, how will you decide. These kind of decisions include what college you choose to attend, what person you choose to marry, what company you choose to work for, how many children you choose to have, etc.
- When the choice we are making isn’t a matter of right and wrong then we must discern what is wise and what is unwise.
We need wisdom in the challenges we will face. January 1st was the first day in a New Year. You probably noticed that lots of the issues of 2010 were still on your plate. If you are in a difficult situation you will need wisdom to navigate it. Wisdom will help you handle the challenges of an insecure work environment. It will help you address communication challenges in your relationships. It will help you direct your resources.
- Sometimes the challenge before us will not be resolved by asserting our will, but rather by accessing wisdom.
We need wisdom in the problems we must solve. There are issues that drain us and frustrate us. Avoiding a problem will not make it go away – in fact that strategy often allows it to get worse. Just because the solution isn’t obvious doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. You may have tried a solution and discovered it did not work. That doesn’t mean there is no solution.
Wisdom can resolve what is unsolved in your life.
