Wisdom is not generally a person's default position. Yet, we desperately need to hear and apply Wisdom
I love to listen to my Pastor, Andy Stanley, Senior Pastor of North Point Community Church. At the end of each sermon, Andy prays for the congregants and seems to always state:
“Lord, I pray for wisdom for all to hear the message and to have the courage to apply it.”
My true mentor, Dr. Ken Boa, Theologian, has a more humorous way to say the same thing:
“May we have wisdom to know that the tomato is classified as a fruit but may we also know that it is not to be used as part of a fruit salad.”
I try to apply wisdom in my daily life and in my legal life. It is hard to do so consistently and even harder to do so accurately.
I want to always give coherent, consistent and clear legal advice. But to do so it is important to continually study the source of truth to listen to the right teachings and to seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Many of my colleagues have burned out, become jaundiced, prejudiced and quite negative. I try to live consistently, not to pre-judge, think positively and to be grateful for what God has been given to me. Everything I have is through grace and mercy.
