KNOWING YOURSELF

James 1:5

 

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.

 

 

LESSON

 

What James just explained is divine “wisdom”: God’s view of life. However, the world, which does not have or accept this revealed wisdom, generally fails to appreciate the value of enduring trials. The Christian is apt to take the world’s attitude toward his or her trials, rather than God’s, and try to escape them at any cost. James used the word “wisdom to refer to what God has revealed about His will for human life. If we do not understand God’s view of life, James urged that we “keep on asking” God to enable us to understand it.

Facing times of testing with a mature outlook demands insight beyond oneself & what is available in the natural realm. Wisdom is a key aspect of a disciple’s life. God provides it in a number of ways, including through the trials of life.
