The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge...
By the time I was in my early thirties, I had children who were turning into teenagers, and the last thing I believed about myself was that I had enough wisdom to get me through the years that were just ahead.
I believe that choosing that kind of focus in life will help us to be much more intentional about how we live. God has written quite a bit in His words to us in the Bible about living with joy and intention.
I love setting out each Nativity set that I have collected over the years because each one reminds me, again, of God’s Big Story which covers all of history from before time began. I also have a place in that story—in this era for a purpose on my own personal journey towards heaven. How about you? Where are you on that journey this Christmas?
To live an intentional life requires wisdom and knowledge beyond ourselves.
