Who is the wisest person you know?
"The wisest person I know is Jesus," says Melissa, 10. "He died on the cross for our sins."
Melissa, you've probably read the Apostle Paul's first letter to the Corinthians, in which he said Jesus is the "wisdom of God." At first glance, dying like a criminal on a cross looked like absolute folly. But when Jesus rose from the dead, he destroyed the so-called "wisdom" of those who dismissed him as a false Messiah.
Paul picked up this theme when he wrote that the message of the cross appears as utter foolishness to those who reject it, but it's the means of salvation for those who trust Jesus Christ as their savior.
Kyle, 12, agrees that Jesus is the wisest person he knows because "He does everything for His Father."
So if we follow Jesus' example and do everything for God, we will be wise.
Point to ponder: Jesus is the wisdom of God.
Scripture to remember: "For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God" (I Corinthians 3:19).
Question to consider: Have you asked God for his wisdom?
