Seeking Wisdom

When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that is was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.  Genesis 3:6

How often have we done the same thing?  Oh it might not be fruit from a tree that we are eating but it is the same.  We are out and about with the girls and we see a dress, or a pair of shoes,  or a necklace and we make the comment I really like that but I can't afford it right now.  Then three little words of encouragement come, try it on, we resist because we know that if we do and we like the way it looks or the way it makes us feel that we will be tempted to reason things out.  Then there are those words of encouragement again, girl that looks good on you, and we give in to our desires. 

We have all made bad choices in life, I know that I have.  We make those bad choices when we forget the most important thing when temptation comes our way.  We forget to pray seeking God's wisdom for our lives, for the choices we make.  We are tempted every day in our daily lives as we strive to keep up with the others and envy the things they have.  Temptation will always be there but we have God on our side and He will give us the strength to resist.

Seek Ye First
by Karen Lafferty

Seek Ye first the kingdom of God,
And His righteousness,
And all these things, shall be added onto you,
Alleu, Alleuia

Man shall not live by bread alone,
But by every word
That proceeds from the mouth of God
Alleu, Alleuia

Ask and it shall be given unto you,
Seek and ye shall find.
Knock and the door shall be opened onto you.
Alleu, Alleuia

Seek ye first the kingdom of God
And His righteousness
And all these things, shall be added onto you.
Alleu, Alleuia
