Sometimes we meet a wise person and we know it. Other times it takes longer for the wisdom to sink in. We do not always want to hear what a wise person has to say. Today consider who the wise people are in your life. You might start a journal in which you write down little bits of wisdom that you hear from people or have read.

Dear God, help me to recognize the wisdom that I encounter each day so that I can become more wise and more grounded in you. Thank you for the people you have sent into my life to point me in the right direction. (Taken from “Good News Day by Day: Bible Reflections for Teens.”)
