Weekday devotionals for Christians

Don’t Miss This Invite

James 1:5
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

One of the most lavish weddings the world has ever seen was held in April of 2011. Prince William married Catherine Middleton. Millions of people around the world watched on TV as the future ruler of England was married. In contrast to the great number watching electronically, only about 1,900 people were invited to attend the wedding. The royal wedding invitations alone cost an estimated $32,000. Those who received these invitations were the only ones who were allowed to enter the cathedral and observe the wedding in person.

You may never be selected to receive an invitation to a royal wedding, but the King of kings has offered you and every person an open invitation to all of His children. He invites us to enter the pages of the Bible and find the principles of wisdom that lead to success in every area of life. This invitation is not only for the famous, rich, or well connected. It’s not only for the people we look up to as “super Christians” either. It is for all who are willing to hear the call and respond. It is for us.

It is hard to picture someone being invited to a special event like the royal wedding and not coming to it. Surprisingly, many chose not to attend and listen to the voice of wisdom. We seek wisdom through God’s Word, we are guaranteed to find it…

Proverbs 8:1-4
(1) Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?
(2) She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.
(3) She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.
(4) Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man.

God has not hidden his Wisdom or restricted access to it. We must seek it and ask for it. No one can truly be wise apart from the knowledge and application of the principles found in the only true source of wisdom…God’s Word.
