This week's readings revolve around Wisdom. It is the gift asked for by Solomon, praised in the psalm, revealed in Jesus of Nazareth, and encouraged by the Epistle. In the opening pages of Richard Foster's Celebration of Discipline, he writes, "The desperate need today is not for a greater number of intelligent people, or gifted people, but for deep people." I agree with Foster and understand his statement to reflect a need for wisdom in our world, that is, not just information or opinions, but a knowledge which comes from a deep well of faith.
