Why We Need Wisdom

Aug 6, 2023    Trent Casto

Trials not only reveal and refine our faith, but our trials also reveal where our character is lacking and needs to be completed. And one of the things we frequently lack which keeps us from having joy in our trials is wisdom. The good news is that God promises to give that wisdom to all who ask for it in faith. Join us this week to discover why we need wisdom and how to get it.

3. Do you ever feel reluctant to ask God for wisdom (or anything else)? Why do you feel that way, and does this passage correct your thinking at all?

4. What does it mean to be double-minded versus single-minded? What is the remedy for our double-mindedness?
