Matthew 22.15-22 – Not only is Jesus a King of great power and grace, He is also a King with all wisdom. In answering every challenge posed to Him, he reveals his supreme wisdom in all matters: civil, theological, and ethical. He is truly wise to save and to rule.
If our King is all wise, it means that His people have the glorious gift of understanding. Why is understanding so glorious? Because it allows us to see the gifts and work of God in all things. This is especially needful as we face the current health crisis surrounding COVID-19. Even in the midst of this challenging time, we believe that God is giving good gifts, namely the gifts of prayer, dependence, connection, and opportunity. Will we be wise enough to receive them?
