And Solomon said … Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, able to discern between good and evil;
~1 Kings 3:6a, 9a
How we need wisdom! We live in such a complicated and challenging time. The climate is at code red, as if we didn’t already know this before the latest UN report. Delta is on the rise, but vaccinations are lagging behind cynicism, misinformation, and death tolls, despite a world of knowledge at our fingertips. Housing security is fragile. And yet, hints of a fragile bipartisanship in the other Washington flash a glimmer of hope that solutions to vexing challenges are not out of reach. Pressures are everywhere.
Live carefully, as wise people, making the most of our days, Ephesians advises, “for the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:16). And it is hard to disagree about that last part. Indeed wisdom is so valued because it is the enfleshment of our most precious hopes for the world and one another amidst a decidedly non-black-and-white existence and an uncertain future. Wisdom cuts through the noise. It forages among so much junk for the food that feeds us forever. It gets us to love enfleshed. Let us make the most of our days!
