His wisdom, our thriving

Wisdom isn't a word that people use as widely in everyday speech as they once did. Yet these are times that demand more wisdom of us all, as the statement from The Christian Science Board of Directors in this issue reminds us.

The books of Psalms and Proverbs in the Bible mention wisdom frequently, as does the New Testament. The writer of James, for example, concerned about pride and words without works, says: "Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!" And his counsel comes later: "Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom."
