Wisdom and might for all of us
For the Lesson titled "Mind" from August 18 - 24, 2014
Wisdom and might are qualities typically thought to have a human source. This week’s Bible Lesson, titled “Mind,” shows us that they are, in reality, spiritual qualities, belonging to God and reflected by all His children. The Golden Text quotes Daniel as saying, “Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his” (Daniel 2:20), which makes their source quite clear.
In Word Biblical Commentary, Vol. 30, John E. Goldingay notes that the wisdom Daniel is referring to is spiritual insight, rather than empirical knowledge—not something we attain intellectually, but something we receive from God.
