“Wisdom, God’s gift for a happy life … comes to us in the person of Jesus Christ and in the shape of a cross.” 

Proverbs 3:18

She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her; those who hold her fast are called blessed. 

1 Corinthians 1:18

For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 

Many people long for wisdom to help them live more successfully and with greater happiness. There are many self-help books and seminars out there that promise to provide practical helps. Some of them help us change a bit of our outer behavior and make practical adjustments to manage our lives a little better. But Scripture says that God’s wisdom for a happy life is found in a tree. That tree is the cross of Jesus Christ. Unfortunately, the wisdom of God is something that is not easily understood by people, but which is the power of God to transform us from the inside out and to save us. Come and join us for our summer retreat on June 10-12 in which we will reflect together on God’s wisdom and its application to our daily lives. See you there!
