So, sometimes we have questions. Sometimes grownups talk about people in the news, or in history, you may not have even heard of! Questions are fine. In fact, questions are very good! Being curious to learn more is how you “grow in – guess what?– WISDOM!!!
When you read the story of Uncommon Wisdom, here's a question you may have:
1) What is the "Upside downside, Hindpart-before side, Inside Kingdom of God"?
When you talk to "Wisdom" you'll often hear talk about the upsidedown-side, hind-part-before side, inside of Kingdom of God. What's that all about? Well, for example, in the everyday ordinary world we know, when someone says something unkind to you, you may just want to say something ugly right back! After all, they started it, right?
But in the Bible -- the book of Wisdom -- the Bible says we are to bless those who do wrong to us and to pray for those who are spiteful and use us to their advantage. (Luke 6:28). Huh? Well, doesn't God care that somebody did us wrong? Oh, yes. God sees... And He will take care of setting the record straight if we'll just forgive and pray and bless.
Another "upside down" Wisdom principle is "Give and it will be given to you, pressed down, shaken together, shall men give to you."! Now, that's different! Most people think you need to work hard for what you get and keep everything you earn and that's the way money multiplies. But in the "upside down kingdom" you give and God will make it multiply back to you! Amazing, isn't it!?
So, what does it mean "inside" Kingdom of God? Well, if you have made Jesus the Lord of your life, His spirit has come to live inside your heart -- the very best part of you.
Say! Would you like to do that right now? Say this after me:
"Jesus, I receive your love today and all that you did for me on the cross.
Come live in me and I will live for you. Amen."
