I perceive the resplendence of wisdom when I stay aware of and act on opportunities to love my neighbor, forgive those who have hurt me, take responsibility for my words and actions, give food to the hungry, visit the sick and lonely, seek peaceful resolutions to conflict.
I find wisdom in my own loneliness, in my realization of my need for God’s guidance, comfort, and boundless love as I continue to make mistakes on the Way to perfection.
Resplendent and unfading is wisdom,
and she is readily perceived by those who love her,
and found by those who seek her. Wisdom 6:12
Wonderful post Mary. You and I were headed in the same direction on this one. Our love of neighbor, forgiveness, giving of ourselves is the wisdom if we know if we have any oil in our lamp or not? This post and my thoughts on our readings really touched me this week. God Bless, SR
And you make me think: WHO is the oil that lights the lamp I carry?
