Wisdom means knowing who God is and knowing who you are, so that when the unexpected comes, you know how to cope.
This was inspired by a post by Paul Tripp, Prepared Spontaneity (Mon Aug 22nd).
I also like this quote from his "About Me" text.
We believe it is not enough to believe in life after death, we believe in real hope of life before death. We believe in real hope of personal growth and change. We believe in real hope of community and institutional change. Why? Because we believe in the transforming power of Jesus Christ.
