LeRoy Eims on the importance of Scripture memory: "I think two of the master strokes of the devil have been to convince people he doesn't exist, and that Scripture memory is only for children. He remembers the humility of defeat when Jesus Christ, who was tempted in all points like as we are, met him with the Word of God." (What Every Christian Should Know About Growing; p. 26-27)

James 1:5

Well, it's not Monday, but here we go.

Start by reviewing 1 Corinthians 13.

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. (NIV)

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God,who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. (ESV)

Wisdom is necessary to live life for the glory of God.  Not wisdom as the world see wisdom.  But divine wisdom, grounded within the absolutes revealed to us in the Word, and then lived out.  Practical wisdom.  And we simply need to ask.  As with all of His blessings, God has wisdom in abundance, ready to pour out on those who seek it.  Just like Solomon.

Repeat today's verse over and over, meditating on its truths, as you hide this verse in your heart today.
