They talk about the wise old owl –
But is he really wise?
He looks menacing to me –
Just take a gander at his eyes!
Did God make some birds wiser
Than the rest of birds and folks?
I know He made some funnier –
Some share the greatest jokes!
Animals do the darndest things –
You know God made them smart.
Where do humans get such wisdom?
Where do we go for a start?
The Bible is full of ideas
for finding wisdom and where.
I think a lot of different books
Suggest that wisdom’s there.
You can search the shelves forever
And find words to the wise, for sure.
But if you want to GAIN that wisdom,
Go first to the Book that’s pure.
No, it doesn’t take a lot of searching.
The Book is the most ever sold.
Every word in it is God breathed –
It’s the wisest story ever told.
James 3:17-18Righteousness = free from guilt or sin; justifiable; genuine & excellent.
“But the wisdom
that comes from heaven
is first of all
* pure, then
* full of mercy, and
* good fruit,
* impartial, and
Peacemakers who sow in
peace raise a harvest
Hah! There are Bible coloring books,
But they are for beginners who want to start
Getting used to those Bible stories
Before taking them to heart.
If you want an apple from the Teacher,
Don’t search Google for the book.
Just go to your own Bible, my friends.
You’ll find wisdom there, if you look.
Don’t let it sit upon the shelf
Gathering cobwebs, dust and dirt.
Take it down, dust it off, and read.
Gaining a little more wisdom never hurt!
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Kristyn Getty has such a pure and sweet voice.God bless you, dear friends.
The words to this song are wise indeed.
I hope you’ll take time to listen and enjoy.
Gaining God’s wisdom is an every day need.
May His wisdom increase in you every day.
May you dress yourself daily in His strength!
Sending you love, hugs, and best wishes
for a happy, healthy, and wise Friday.
