A new school year is underway. After purchasing new clothes, school supplies, and textbooks, students are "ready" for school. But, in our society, wisdom is lacking. "Wisdom" is NEVER on the school supply list! God's Word tells us to seek wisdom (Prov. 2:4). The LORD promises to generously give wisdom to those who ask (James 1:5). In addition to gaining wisdom, we also pray for our grandchildren to develop godly attitudes, place their confidence in the LORD, set right priorites, treat others with love and respect, obey those in authority, and resist temptation.
