Right now I’m dealing with some situations that require wisdom.
One involves an individual where advice is crucial. Another may impact the future of a 140-year old organization. A third relates to a book project. And the last one is what I will eat for dinner so I can keep losing a few pounds.
Just kidding on the last one.
But maybe not. We desperately need wisdom in every area of life–especially the big ones.
I have many concerns about the 21st century, from terrorism to tyrants with nukes, from mass refugee migration to the breakdown of morals and family life in the civilized world.
But one of those concerns is currently “on the march” in America in ways we have never seen. Just this past weekend we saw it rear its ugly head in St. Louis following a judge’s ruling in favor of a white policeman who shot and killed a black man. But we’ve seen it many times before in past months.
