I am Thankful for Jesus’ Wisdom

I am Thankful for Jesus’ Wisdom

Colossians 2:1-3–

How often do you struggle to know what to do? The multi-billion-dollar industry of ‘knowledge influencers’ focusing on things like self-help books and YouTube tutorials indicates that question offers more than a hypothetical scenario. The money and time devoted to those who seem to have answers evidences our recognition that we need wisdom, that we need guidance and knowledge to know what to do. That same need drives the Bible’s story, which traces the failures of pursuing wisdom on one’s own rather than finding it in God (Genesis 3).

The apostle Paul wrote that thankfulness occupies an essential place in a Christian’s identity (cf. Philippians 4:6; Colossians 4:2; 1 Thessalonians 5:18). Motivated by that character and the Thanksgiving holiday, we have been using our Sundays this month to explore reasons we should be thankful. This lesson concludes the series by using the struggle to know what to do to focus us on another incentive for our thankfulness: I am thankful for Jesus’ wisdom.
