The Lord is king; he is robed in majesty. — Psalm 93:1
Mass Readings: Sirach 1:1-10 / Mark 9:14-29
There’s been no scarcity of information available to us in the Internet age but, as today’s first reading reminds us, “All wisdom comes from the Lord.” Biblical wisdom goes beyond knowledge; it’s about viewing things from God’s perspective, and it’s focused on knowing God’s will and walking in God’s ways. This presupposes faith; hence, while “Fools say in their hearts, ‘There is no God’” (Ps 14:1), “The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord” (Prv 9:10).
God is the source of all wisdom and — as James teaches — “if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives to all generously” (Jas 1:5). That’s precisely what the father in today’s Gospel did by crying out to Jesus, “Help my unbelief!”
Prayer: Lord, grant me Your wisdom, that I may know Your will and walk in Your ways.
