(By Becky Dvorak) Need to make a difficult decision? Do you feel as if you are backed into a corner and you just don’t know what you should do? We’ve all been in this place one time or another, and although it’s not pleasant, there is an answer. James 1:5 encourages us with these words, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men liberally and without criticism, and it will be given to him.” This word “wisdom”, sophía, G4678 in Strong’s Concordance, means either worldly or spiritual wisdom and skill in the management of affairs.
