True Wisdom – James 3:13-18
28. True Wisdom manages resources well.
Proverbs 6:6-11; Luke 12:35-48
Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. (Colossians 4:5)
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. (Psalm 90:12)
And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom his master will set over his household, to give them their portion of food at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes… Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more. (Luke 12:42-43, 48b)
Study it Out
- What truth about our natural limitations do the first two passages listed remind us of? Why is it important that we have that focus throughout each day?
- What position has God given us over the family, responsibilities, and possessions that we have according to Luke? How does this help us to think rightly about each?
