My husband and I recently upgraded to smartphones for the very first time. Our adult kids had convinced us of the practicalities and convenience of a smartphone. We were excited as the applications seemed endless. We were ready to transform our lives.
To say the least, the transition has been interesting. I have to admit that I don’t feel so smart with my smartphone. Even the basic functions are fancy with swipes, taps, and voice commands. There are so many choices that sometimes I can’t figure out what I want or even need. My goal is that someday, I will be smart enough for a smartphone.
Smartphones are not the only area of my life where I am constantly learning. Even after twenty years of being a Christian, my faith in God is stretched and fed daily. I discover new applications in my life for the truth of God’s Word. I am given opportunities to make better choices as I walk out my faith. God imparts wisdom that I desire to understand more fully.
The nice thing about God’s wisdom is that it doesn’t make me feel dumb. I am in awe of God’s timeless truths for my life. God’s wisdom doesn’t make me look cool with technology. Rather, I feel loved because His Word lives inside of me through the Holy Spirit. I made the smartest decision when I chose to upgrade my life through faith in Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 1:25
For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.
All this also comes from the LORD Almighty, wonderful in counsel and magnificent in wisdom.
