Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

Merry Christmas! I pray that amidst the stress of the Christmas holiday, the potential "downsides," that it's the joy that triumphs for you. So I say again, "Merry Christmas!"

God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the sea shore. Solomon's wisdom was greater than the wisdom of all the people of the East, and greater than all the wisdom of Egypt.

-1 Kings 4:29,30 TNIV

Yeah, yeah, yeah, Solomon is wise! Got it. We've all heard of the "wisdom of Solomon." But true wisdom will be to deal faithfully with such a blessing. It is a be a steward of wisdom. To squander the blessing of wisdom, ironically, is to be unwise with wisdom.

Perhaps, we count our blessings on Christmas Day. Wisdom invites us to be faithful with those blessings all the days, to be good stewards of God's many blessings. Such will prove to be the greatest blessing.
