*THEME: WISDOM TO MANAGE OUR BLESSINGS.*
Every new role we assume has its own carriage and decorum. Every step up in our journey with God comes with its own aura. A thousand in the hands of the wise is more precious than a million in the hands of the foolish.
We must not take for granted the requirement for every favour we received from God. Knowing God’s expectations help us to maintain our status in his presence.
In our today’s first reading, Moses told the Israelites, ” Behold, I have taught you statutes and ordinances, as the Lord my God commanded me, that you should do them in the land which you are entering to take possession of it.”
We cannot ask God to take us to the next level and we refuse to learn the wisdom and maturity to manage the status we desire. We need enough wisdom and proper knowledge to truly possess our possessions.
Let’s equip ourselves with enough of God’s wisdom with which we can administer our life in holiness and enjoy stable blessings from his presence wherever we find ourselves.
May the word of God dwell in us in all his richness that we be able to contain the import of his favours in our lives. Amen.
