Wisdom vs. Information

Series: FOBO (Fear Of Better Options) | Week 1: Whatcha Gonna Do?

James 1:5-6
“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.”

Wisdom is not the same thing as information. You can’t take a class, read a book, or download something and get wisdom. Wisdom is the ability to apply the right information to your life and it takes time to develop. God would love to give you more wisdom. Just ask Him for it! And when you ask, don’t doubt that He is God and will give you what you need.


1. When facing a decision, who or where is the first place you go for help in making it?

2. Take a minute to ask God for His wisdom in helping you make decisions, believing the truth that He is generous and isn’t going to get mad at you for asking.
