If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. (James 1:5 NIV)
Yesterday my 9 year old son and I were talking about this verse. I said, “Isn’t it amazing that God says to ask for wisdom and He’ll give it without judgment or discretion?! It’s like He doesn’t even care if you’re a good guy or a bad guy, if you want wisdom, He will give it to you!”
And my son says, “That’s because He knows that all wisdom will help people get closer to Him.”
How great is that!? It’s true. Anyone that wants wisdom in any situation on any topic can ask God for it and He’ll deliver. He doesn’t want anybody to be a fool and perish. He wants everyone to be wise and know that He Himself is the ultimate and true source of all wisdom.
