James 1:5 (NLT)
5 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.
For those who might feel discouragement, here is an encouraging word from James. When we go to God in need of wisdom He is sure to provide it. God is of a giving nature that what we ask is not beyond him and it is His nature to be inclined to provide for us. Even though we might ask in small portion God loves to give generously. Whoever we might be -- there is no fear in asking. For God loves all people and is willing to depart His wisdom upon them.
A Texas kindergarten student asked his teacher for help, and she could see why. Even with her pulling and him pushing, the little boots still didn�t want to go on. By the time they got the second boot on, she had worked up a sweat. She almost cried when the little boy said, �Teacher, they�re on the wrong feet.� She looked, and sure enough, they were. It wasn�t any easier pulling the boots off than it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the boots back on, this time on the right feet. He then announced, �These aren�t my boots.� She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream, �Why didn�t you say so?� Once again, she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off his little feet. No sooner had they gotten the boots off when he said, �They�re my brother�s boots. My mom made me wear �em.� Now she didn�t know if she should laugh or cry, but she mustered up what grace and courage she had left to wrestle the boots on his feet again. Helping him into his coat, she asked, �Now, where are your mittens?� He said, �I stuffed �em in the toes of my boots.�
This child was asking for the wisdom of his teacher to help. Unfortunately she didn�t have all the knowledge and facts she needed at one time. It was through trial and error that she persevered. Fortunately there is God who has all the knowledge, all the facts, and all the wisdom we could ever need. And while the teacher might have gotten frustrated, fortunately God never will. God is always there ready to grant us wisdom and help us through our issues when we ask.
