I ordered some fan-tabulous crepes from a food truck recently - blueberry filling with real homemade whipped cream. My first bite was scrumptious! But they only put on a teensy dollop of the whipped cream. It was gone with the first bite.
Have you ever made yourself an ice cream sundae? I love whipped cream on mine. And not just a little bit - sometimes I’ll cover the entire top with it. That’s how much I wanted on my crepes.
James 1:5 says that if you lack wisdom, ask the Lord and He will give it to you.
So what does whipped cream have to do with wisdom? It’s a picture I want you to envision - a liberal amount of whipped cream versus a smidgeon. What’s the use of putting a dab on crepes or ice cream sundaes? Fill up the bowl!
Our theme this summer is, “I Have Decided.” You have to decide, make choices.
I once overheard a mother instruct her teenage son before he left with some friends to “make wise choices.”
That statement can cover any situation in which the young man may find himself. Ask the Lord to give you wisdom and He will. And not just a smidgeon, but a bowlful!
