Deacon’s Corner

Clif Hart, Session Liaison to the Board of Deacons

                                     This week we will reflected upon Wisdom. I remember the many

                                     times, during my working days, when I called upon God for wisdom.

                                     The dictionary describes wisdom as having experience, knowledge,

                                     and good judgement; the qualities of being wise. One of the best

                                     examples of someone having wisdom was Solomon.

                                     In Kings 3:9-13, Solomon prayed not for riches but the following:


"To give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?  The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for this. So God said to him ‘Since you have asked for this and not for long life, or wealth for yourself, nor have asked for death of your enemies but for discernment in administering justice.’  I will do whatever you have asked, I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you; nor will there ever be.  Moreover, I will give you what you have not asked for – both wealth and honor – so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among kings."


There are many other passages in the Bible, such as Daniel 2:19-23, that talk about wisdom and being wise. I hope I have given you enough scripture resources that reflect on how important it is to ask for God’s wisdom in our daily lives.
