As I prepare for worship this week I am musing on wisdom. What is it? How do we get it? HOw is it passed on? How does wisdom relate to knowledge?

ANd of course the big question for those of us who are people of faith: HOw and why are Godly wisdom and worldly wisdom the same? Different?

If we are wanting to develop as people of God we need to embrace the foolish wisdom of God, even when (or perhaps especially when) it goes against "common sense".

ANy thoughts about any of these questions?

  1. It seems to me that most of the wisdom taught and shared by Jesus went entirely against what was thought to be the "common sense" of the day. So maybe true wisdom is the stuff that bubbles to the top when we put popular opinion and common sense aside.
