Play: Have your children name a fictional character they consider wise (Gandalf from The Hobbit , Owl from Winnie-the-Pooh). Who can think of the longest list of characteristics that make this character wise?
Talk: Wisdom is not simply being smart and knowing things. And it’s not "being old." According to Job 28:28, wisdom is the fear of the Lord. This means that someone who is wise respects God and His commands. A wise person looks to God as the boss and makes decisions based on whether that choice will please God. On a scale of one to 10, with 10 being the wisest, how wise are you?
Pray: Thank God for giving us the ability to be wise.
