God has given us all the gift of wisdom. It is amazing what we learn in the wisdom books in the Bible.
So what is today’s lesson?
- Jesus challenges me to do my best. Jesus is clear what the best is. It is to love. That is challenge.
- It is useful to prepare for the worst. God knows what will happen but I don’t. No matter what, God works out everything for my good. Jesus prepared to be brutally murdered and sacrificed for us. He did not ignore that reality.
- I must trust God. The victory is his, not mine. Jesus knew he would die but he also knew God would be victorious and raise him from the dead. And God did. The worst turns into something better.
“Do your best, prepare for the worst—
then trust God to bring victory.” ~King Solomon
