Wisdom

Proverbs 3:13–26 (NET) —13Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who obtains understanding. 14For her benefit is more profitable than silver, and her gain is better than gold. 15She is more precious than rubies, and none of the things you desire can compare with her. 16Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. 17Her ways are very pleasant, and all her paths are peaceful. 18She is like a tree of life to those who obtain her, and everyone who grasps hold of her will be blessed. 19By wisdom the Lord laid the foundation of the earth; he established the heavens by understanding. 20By his knowledge the primordial sea was broken open, and the clouds drip down dew. 21My child, do not let them escape from your sight; safeguard sound wisdom and discretion. 22So they will give life to you, and grace to adorn your neck. 23Then you will walk on your way with security, and you will not stumble. 24When you lie down you will not be filled with fear; when you lie down your sleep will be pleasant. 25You will not be afraid of sudden disaster, or when destruction overtakes the wicked; 26for the Lord will be the source of your confidence, and he will guard your foot from being caught in a trap. I think we can all agree that wisdom is a good thing. It is something that most people seek and are natural drawn to. Recently I was thinking about Proverbs 3:13-26 and what it takes to be wise. While the list below is not exhaustive it contains the basic things that I think are needed to be a wise person. […]

Watch Out 2014 Here Comes Pastor Pete…

Well 2014 is here and for my first post of the year I thought I would let you guys know what I have decided to commit to for the coming year. Rather than doing really specific goals this year I have created some broader guidelines for my life so here goes… I am committed to challenging myself in 2014. This includes  my education and ongoing studies for my doctorate, my physical fitness, and my effectiveness as a disciple.  I am going to push the limits and go further than I ever have before! I am committed to allowing God to change me. As I consider my walk with Christ over the last two decades so much has changed and I have come a really long way.  But there is more to do and I have to be open to the changes I know God wants to make in my life.  Some are going to hurt but it’s now or never. I am committed to counting my blessings each and everyday. This helps me slow down and enjoy life. I don’t want to rush through 2014, instead I want to  embrace every blessing and enjoy every moment.  So I have decided to set aside time at the end of each day to consider the blessings I received over that 24 hour period. That’s it, those are my plans and goals for the next 365 days.  What do you have in mind for 2014? Put your comments below…
