Being Smart or Being Wise | Devotional by Julie Cosgrove

Is there a distinction?

I believe being sensible typically depends on our personal cognitive talents.

He certain is smart.

That was a sensible answer you got here up with.

What a sensible factor to do!

We faucet into our personal data, be it by way of studying, finding out or experiences.

Once we are being clever, we depend on somebody or one thing aside from our personal storehouse of data to tell us, realizing our personal limitations. That takes humility but in addition discernment.

The Apostle James wrote: But the knowledge that comes from heaven is to start with pure; then peace-loving, thoughtful, submissive, stuffed with mercy and good fruit, neutral and honest. James 3:17

The extra we embrace the marvel of God, the extra we notice how insufficient we’re with out His steering in our lives. Smartness depends on what you have already got saved in your mind. Knowledge consistently seeks to study, embrace and use data from an out of doors supply. For the believer, that supply is our Lord.

It’s good to be sensible, whether or not from the road or from books. However how a lot better to achieve knowledge from the One who created the universe and expressed full love on the cross!

Lord of all knowledge, improve our want to know You, to emulate You and to show to You once we simply don’t perceive.

Thought: What scenario or downside at this time is past your means to determine? Deliver it earlier than God in prayer. Ask for His knowledge.
