“Wisdom, according to the Bible, has nothing to do with how well you did on your SATs, with how many books you’ve read, or with your abilities in logical debate. Wisdom is a different kind of skill. (Notice in Exodus 28:3; 35:25; and 36:1 that skillfulness is the essential meaning of the Hebrew word wisdom.) Biblical wisdom is the skill of pleasing God that comes as a result of a personal, submissive relationship with Him—a relationship that affects every choice in your life.” (Chris Anderson, Joe Tyrpak, Carl Trueman, Gospel Meditations for Prayer)

Feliz Friday! Well, Thanksgiving has come and is almost gone, so I wanted to share some resources that relate to this holiday and beyond. Enjoy this (special) week’s links!
- Since we are celebrating Thanksgiving this week, here are a few links to share, thanks to the Crossway blog: 10 things to know about Thanksgiving, the connection between thankfulness and joy, nine passages to read on gratitude, the importance of food at Thanksgiving, five readings for your Thanksgiving gathering, and how to eat with gratitude this Thanksgiving.
- Desiring God Ministries shared some of their articles on Thanksgiving over the last few years, and included resources for Advent as well. Good time to start thinking about the first coming of Christ.
- As a way of showing thanks, Ligonier Ministries reminds us of their free Crucial Questions booklets, of which 28 have been written. These are very short answers to common questions Christians have throughout their walks with Christ. Don’t forget R.C. Sproul every year provides a free resource on Thanksgiving that is always worth listening to.
- Julie Lowe at CCEF writes on how to instill gratitude in your family. Parents, this can be a great teaching point for your children.
- Justin Taylor highlights an article by biblical counselor David Powlison called, “Does the Shoe Fit?” on unfair and fair criticism. Anything by Powlison is worth reading.
That’s all for this week! Hope you all are thankful to God for the gift of His Son, and spend this weekend thanking Him most of all. Hope you all can worship the Lord on Sunday!
