Throughout our lives we are invited to grow in wisdom. Unlike many other learning experiences, it is not something that is achieved in a short time. Instead, it is a life time of growth that comes through experience, listening, being in tune with strong core values and paying attention to the needs of others. Wisdom grows gently and slowly, unfolding as time passes. Learning to discern and make wise choices requires us to create space for listening and reflection and placing the good of others above our own needs. Creating the space to sit at the feet of wise people through listening or reading, can lead to greater wisdom.
Deep wisdom flows from God. Sitting at His feet, paying attention to His words within the Bible and creating time for reflection creates space for wisdom to flow and grow.
