Surrounded By Wisdom

Thursday, May 14, 2009

I love wisdom. I have always admired those people who are truly wise. I long to have a piece of the understanding that they have been blessed with.

This morning I began to ponder just how much wisdom surrounds me! I have the Word of God at my fingertips anytime I open it up and place it before my eyes. I have the ability to click links, open books, watch tapes, and discuss Biblical thinking and loving. This is just one more reminder of how great God's plan to form the Body of Christ among beleivers truly is.

I'd like to share two pieces of wisdom with you.

The first comes from my 11 year old sister. Yesterday we were at Wal-Mart. As we walked through the toy isle, we were bombarded with half dressed Barbies, Bratz, and other plastic "play things". I noticed that my sister who was walking in front of me put her head down and raised her hand so that it came between her face and the shelf. I asked her what she had done and why and she looked at me and simply said,

"Those things we just passed were not properly dressed."

This made my heart leap for joy. My sister's standard, even in her young age, is the Bible. She knows what PROPER is and desires to gaurd herself from anything less. She does not practice it let alone look upon it. My sister has not been deceived into forgetting how to blush.

The other comes from John Piper. I'll let you watch for yourself.

Please note that this version does not allow you to see all the footage. If you go to the homepage or click here you can watch it in total.

  1. Actually, both of your wonderful bits of wisdom reminded me of an incident way back when George Bush and John Kerry were campaigning. Micah, who was 7 at the time, said, "Hitler's a lot like John Kerry." At first I was completely stunned--not only that Micah knew who those men were, but that he would make such a bold comparison. Someone asked him why, and he said, "Well, he kills babies and wants to be president." Although I would never have said that, younger siblings sometimes have such wisdom, don't they? And that video gave me chills.
    Great post!


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
