Lord, Will You Make Me More Wise? (Mar-Apr 2007)

By Matt Dabbs

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God.
Let your good spirit lead me on a level path.
Psalm 143:10

Be an example in spirit. Always cherish a meek, gentle, and quiet spirit—a humble, loving, heavenly, and praying spirit. Such a spirit will almost silence the tongue of slander, or cause its poisoned darts to fall harmless at the feet. – Barton W. Stone, Christian Messenger (1843)


Does not wisdom call, and does not understanding raise her voice?
On the heights, beside the way, at the crossroads she takes her stand;
beside the gates in front of the town, at the entrance of the portals she cries out:

“To you, O people, I call, and my cry is to all that live.
O simple ones, learn prudence; acquire intelligence, you who lack it.
Proverbs 8:1-5

Father, give me the gentleness and humility I need to receive wisdom. Teach me this day to do your will.
