1 Corinthians 1:17-31
Why Lack Wisdom?

Why Lack Wisdom?

The world is complicated

  • An explosion of information
  • An explosion of regulation

A good reason to pray for wisdom: 

  • to navigate the confusion

A bad reason to pray for wisdom;

  • to win in the complicated games of life

1 Corinthians 1:17-31

  • The intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate

Isaiah 29:14

  • Bright ideas that do not actually help
  • Most people just want to cope
  • Jesus helps

How do we find godly wisdom?

  • Come to Christ in faith
  • Pray
    James 1:5-8 - We can be confident the Lord cares for and guides us.
  • Draw on the Word of God.
  • Seek input from fellow believers

These 4 pillars do not remove all uncertainty but lead the church and individual Christians to stability.

They are not dramatic but outlast the powers of this world. 1 Kings 19

If you lack wisdom, ask God.  He will gladly provide it.  James 1:5
