WORDS FROM THE WISE

A series exploring what the Scriptures have to say about wisdom

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)

The intriguing promise given in this verse has been the catalyst for a wide-ranging investigation into the unique and mysterious concept of wisdom. What is it? Where is it to be found? Why should we desire it? What does the Bible have to say about it?

Join Paul in a journey of discovery, starting with the Bible’s ‘wisdom literature’ (e.g. Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Job) and traversing the whole span of Scripture. At the end, hopefully you will understand better the blessings and challenges that arise if we “Pay attention…to the sayings of the wise” (Proverbs 22:17).
