When the new year began, did you know that it would be dominated by this pandemic? Could you see this four months ago? Can you see four months from today? Neither can I. The good news is that we can turn to wisdom beyond ourselves. The prophet Isaiah said of Jesus: “The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord” (Isaiah 11:2). Jesus demonstrated such wisdom and foreknowledge throughout his earthly ministry.
Brad Pitt is back in the news, and for more than his next movie.
