This month we will be on a hunt! We will be hunting for Wisdom, and learning why it is worth searching for!
Week One: Luke 2:41-52
We start the month with Jesus and our only glimpse into His life as a child. In Luke 2:41-52 we discover that Jesus knew His Father’s house was where he needed to be. We’re told that Jesus grew in wisdom, faith, and friendship. This is the model we should follow as we seek to grow in our own relationship with God.
Bottom Line: If you want to be wise, search for wisdom.
Week Two: Proverbs 22:3
This week, we look to something Solomon wrote in Proverbs 22:3. Wise people see danger and go to a safe place, but childish people keep going and suffer for it, (NIrV). Without thinking, people can rush into a situation and soon discover that they are in trouble. Solomon warns us to make sure we know what we’re facing before we move forward with a decision.
Bottom Line: If you want to be wise, look before you leap.
Week Three: 2 Chronicles 10
In week three, we head to 2 Chronicles 10 and discover what happens with Solomon’s son, Rehoboam. When he took over as king over Israel, people pleaded with him to make life easier for them. Rehoboam received counsel on both sides of this issue. Rather than acting on the advice from his father’s advisers, he acts on the foolish advice of his friends. This ends up causing a split in the nation of Israel, creating Israel and Judah.
Bottom Line: If you want to be wise, hang out with wise people.
Week Four: Proverbs 3:5-6
In week four, we finish up the month with another one of Solomon’s proverbs in Proverbs 3:5-6. This familiar passage talks about trusting God’s plan rather than our own. When we lean on our own understanding, we will never consistently make the wise choice. It’s through trusting in God that we can find true wisdom for our life.
Bottom Line: If you want to be wise, trust God to give you wisdom.
