On Divorced Marriage Counselors

Some of the best marriage counselors I’ve ever met are divorced. Strange right?

Paradoxes like that serve as a constant reminder that there is a difference between knowledge and wisdom.

You can have tons of knowledge, but if you don’t apply it correctly it won’t do any good. Many of those counselors learned huge lessons because they did it the hard way.

Wisdom, on the other hand, rightly applies knowledge. It avoids lots of mistakes by applying principles. By seeking wise counsel. The easier way.

This month our Summit Life group is focusing on wisdom. Though I frequently choose to learn the hard way, I really do want more than just knowledge. I want to live with skill. Do things right the first time. Not have to learn the hard way.

It’s one thing to know the information.

It’s a whole other thing to actually do it. That’s where the rubber meets the road.

The way of wisdom is a much smoother path in the end, but very few people seem to be following it these days.

Get wisdom.

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. James 1:22-24
