Praying for Wisdom

Dad has taught you since you were young...Pray for wisdom - the Lord will graciously give it to you.  He told you to remember Solomon and how the Lord let him choose what he would like and he picked wisdom.  He received more than wisdom - he received all that was offered to him.  Wisdom is a treasure that shouldn't be taken for granted.  You both are very gifted and talented - Pray God will make clear His plans for you - Dad and I are praying for you both to know exactly which steps to take!  Dig into the word - it is full of truths, wisdom and treasures.  We love our weekly trivia, learning facts about football, art, cooking and other odds and ends.  It is great to learn about all of these things and increase our learning  and expertise in various areas of our lives.  But always remember to stay in His Word daily.  Don't just quickly read it to read it - but dig into it - find the truths and wisdom that God wants you to know.  It is His Living Word  - Listen to Him Speak.

Proverbs 2:6
For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

Proverbs 8:11
For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.

Proverbs 16:16
How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
