God's creative, funny, gentle wisdom

The Lord by skillful and godly Wisdom has founded the earth; by understanding He has established the heavens. [Col. 1:16.] (Proverbs 3:19 AMP)

We all need wisdom to make right choices. We have numerous, or maybe innumerable is a better word, for the amount of choices in a day, a week, a lifetime. There are diet choices at every meal with a fast food restaurant calling our name. There is the choice to exercise today or not. Who do I marry? How do I raise my children? What if I'm raising them alone?

God's wisdom created the earth. From space there are beautiful cloud formations, azure waters, lights sparkling across the continents at night. That's only part of what He did with wisdom. There are funny giraffes, adorable penguins, and really weird sea cucumbers. Wisdom isn't stuffy or without understanding. In fact wisdom is first of all pure and full of quiet gentleness, then peaceable and easy to reason with. (James 3:17)

Our life choices could use the qualities of God's wisdom, His creativity for how to raise a child, a sense of humor can defuse most situations, gentleness can soothe another's soul and so on. We can have this creative, funny, gentle wisdom by asking God for some. He's generous in giving out wisdom and it pleases him to do so. Just believe that He rewards those who desire to know Him, because He does. If You are searching for Him, He's wooing you to Himself.
