Saturday's Quotation[s]

And now for something a bit unexpected this Saturday.

Usually, I post a quotation or two.  But each Bible verse I read this morning dealt with wisdom, a beautiful, Godly trait that I crave more of everyday.  I have also spoken to a few people lately who have been desiring the same thing...more wisdom.  More Godly wisdom.

It occurred to me that we could begin a challenge, as a community.  How do you all feel about this?  For the next twenty-one days, let's give ourselves a Scriptural remember about what it is to be wise.  I challenge you to write this verse on a notecard and carry it with you, tape it to your bathroom mirror, or tuck it inside your Bible:

"For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.  But the wisdom of heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.  Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness."
James 3:16-18

Would you take this challenge with me?  Every time you encounter a decision, one that stops you in your tracks, take a glance at God's word to you from James and ask: Is this wise?  They say it takes twenty-one days to make a habit, so let us commit to making wisdom a deeply ingrained, Spirit-led habit!

Here is my reminder card:

For more quotations on wisdom, read Proverbs 13 and 14.  Both chapters are full of verses that speak into what makes a wise person.

If you will commit to writing this verse down and keeping it close for the next twenty-one days, will you let me know in the comments below?  Let's make the journey together to becoming more wise women of God!
