Wisdom: God’s Mind Coming to Us

Wisdom enlarges understanding and sharpens viewpoints. Wisdom discerns between similar options. Wisdom builds a memory of examples to help guide us. 

Wisdom is God’s mind coming to us in tiny increments that we can comprehend. In fact, wisdom itself is fine evidence of God-with-us.

You may not feel close to God right now. But can you savor the wisdom stored up in your life? The wisdom that has soaked into your way of thinking and acting is one manifestation of God that is quite active in you. And close to you—so close, it has become your own mind thinking. 

I acknowledge, God, that you have already nurtured wisdom in me. Help me see it.
