Scripture Passage: James 3:13-15

Because of its solemn appearance with its large round eyes, the owl is sometimes considered to be a symbol of wisdom. James says that the wisdom of this world is not from Heaven but leads us into evil. We need to read God's word and learn wisdom from Him. If we pray and ask Him to help us understand His word when we read it, the Holy Spirit will give us the wisdom we need. John 16:13 says that the Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth. Let us seek for God's wisdom.

If you need wisdom—if you want to know what God wants you to do—ask him, and he will gladly tell you. He will not resent your asking. (NLT)
