Do you know what wisdom is? It’s not about how smart you are. Or how old you are. Or even how nice you are. Wisdom means making good choices with the good things you learn. Choosing to do the right thing. Can you get that way on your own? Nope. Not at all. Wanna know why? Keep reading…
It’s not your fault that you were born into a broken, messed up world. But you weren’t very old when you first started choosing to do wrong things. And that means you helped keep the broken world…broken. Don’t feel bad. Everybody else alive did, too. But just because the world is broken doesn’t mean you have to be. At least, not forever.
There’s a place in the Bible where it says getting wisdom in your heart and knowledge in your soul can make you better. Can you guess how you do that? Read the Bible. You can’t choose to do the right thing, if you don’t even know what the right thing is. And the Bible is God’s word. It’s Him talking to you. And me. And everybody who will listen.
God made you. So, He knows what’s best for you. He knows what makes you healthy. And no one on earth loves you more than He does. And He’s smarter and wiser than everybody on earth put together. That means, when you listen to Him and do what He says, you can get wisdom and understanding.
How about it? Are you willing to take a couple of minutes and hear what God has to say about your life? I promise, if you do, you’ll have a much easier time of choosing to do the right thing in life. You won’t always do right, but that’s much better than never doing right.
Get someone to help you understand what Jesus did to make sure you could choose. And when you do, maybe you’ll be able to help others choose to do the right thing, too. And here’s a rhyme to help you remember…
When you wonder what to do,
Then do the right thing.
If you don’t know what to do,
Don’t do anything.
Go discover what God says.
He made everything.
Let His wisdom and His love,
Help you do the right thing.
