James 1:5 NASB "But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him."You are never too old to learn something new, the key is whether our hearts are open to the advice of those who have gone through it before us! Today's verse speaks about wisdom and asking God for it and it will be given to us! Time after time in my life I have needed the wisdom of others, whether it be fatherly advice, an uncle's and/or cousin's mechanical advice, the wisdom of an old pastor friend, the love and support of a godly wife, or the hard questions asked by those in my close men's group, God delivers. Sure there are times when I think I know it all only to find out how wrong I was or how much I still need to learn. Asking for help isn't showing weakness but actually showing the strength we need to gain God's wisdom. Don't let fear or the "macho" image keep us from seeking wisdom, we may just learn a new thing by the answers we get! peace, tom
