Bible Story: Luke 2:41-52. Jesus knew His Father’s house was where he needed to be. We’re told that Jesus grew in wisdom, faith, and friendship. This is the model we should follow as we seek to grow in our own relationship with God.

Bottom Line: If you want to be wise, search for wisdom. Today, there is access to more data than we could possibly need or imagine. But our knowledge is only as good as how we apply it. Find value in searching for wisdom through God’s Word, trusted friends, Small Group Leaders, and their family. Wisdom is out there; we just need to find it.

Key Question: What does it mean to be wise? You learn in school that knowledge is power. But while knowing things is certainly important, how we apply what we know is more important. What is the difference between knowledge and wisdom, and why does it matter for how you can grow in your faith?
