More about wisdom in 1 Corinthians 1:18-31 (HCSC). You can think deep about it or take it in it's simplist straight-forward form. Or make it a word study if you want. Remember to look at the stories.

I've said this before but I don't think wisdom is part of the curriculum anyplace. Who's the wisest person you know? How do you grow the kind of wisdom you see and hear in that person? Jesus' disciples only walked with Him for three years and he was the embodiment of the wisdom of God. I find it interesting that Jesus never said that about himself. (or at least I didn't find it) Paul did. And Paul wasn't in that group of disciples who walked with Him in the flesh.

Reminded me of the "Christ" part of St. Patrick's breastplate - a Christian Irish hymn.

from Ecclesiastes 1 (HCSB)

9" What has been is what will be,
    and what has been done is what will be done;
    there is nothing new under the sun.
    10 Can one say about anything,
    "Look, this is new"?
    It has already existed in the ages before us."

Ecclesiastes. One of the wisdom books. One of my favorites...
Did you ever ponder the book of Ecclesiastes with your kids? God commended Solomon for asking Him for wisdom when he could have asked for anything... and he wasn't that old, as I recall...
