    I beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding.
    PROVERBS 7:7

    A small girl set about preparing a menu for her pretend birthday party. She planned a full meal of cookies, cake, candy, ice cream and potato chips. To drink, there would be lemonade and soda. Her choices were made from her own affection for the treats, but no thought was given to what might be nutritious or keep her from getting sick. Children many times fail to use good sense when they make their decisions. They need guidance in order to avoid unnecessary pain and suffering, but they need it nonetheless.

    When we compare our wisdom with God's, we find that we are simple and dull in relation. We have neither the experience of God, nor the insight. His knowledge so far exceeds our own that we seem naive and inept. Luckily, God offers His wisdom and knowledge with no strings attached. He does so out of love for us, and He only wants us to avoid the pitfalls that come our way. Christian maturity comes when we can admit that we need help and accept the aid God so freely offers.

    Dear Heavenly Father, Break our spirit of resistance. Help us to be obedient to Your will, Father, as a loving and faithful child. Amen and Amen.

    Blessings to all, Judy
