Devotional: Truth Over Lies W6D2

Tuesday – Learn Wisdom

Read: Proverbs 13:20; James 1:5
SOAP: James 1:5

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.- James 1:5


Overcoming the lies in our lives requires us to exhibit wisdom.  Some of us may not think of ourselves as wise.  Fortunately, wisdom is a trait we can develop.  Scripture mentions a couple of ways we can grow in wisdom.

The first way to gain wisdom is by spending time with wise people.  There is truth to the English idiom, “birds of a feather, flock together.”  Wise people associate with the wise and fools accompany fools.

The second way to grow in wisdom to ask God for wisdom.  He is faithful to bestow this gift to the ones who ask in faith.

When was the last time you sought wisdom from those around you or through prayer?

Father God, thank You for allowing me to grow in wisdom.  I ask that You continue to increase my ability to distinguish between truth and lies. Help me to make wise decisions.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
