The nature of Divine Wisdom is explained beautifully in the Holy Bible. “There is in her a spirit that is intelligent, holy, unique, manifold, subtle, mobile, clear, unpolluted, distinct, invulnerable, loving the good, keen, irresistible, beneficent, human, steadfast, sure, free from anxiety, all powerful, overseeing all and penetrating through all spirits, that are intelligent, pure and altogether subtle” (Wisdom 7:22-23)
People who live for the world would desire more worldly wisdom more education, more wealth, popular name and more and more of everything which the world can give. But Divine Wisdom does not come from any worldly books, it comes from the book of law that is “Holy Bible”. “Open my eyes, so that, I behold wondrous thing out of your law” (Psalm 119:18). Every word from this book is from the mouth of God. “For the Lord gives wisdom, from his mouth come knowledge and understanding” (Prov 2:6). “Wisdom is from the Lord and with him it remains forever” (Sir. 1:1)
The festival of Christmas is celebrated all over the world with great pomp & show. 2000 years back Jesus was born as Good-News to mankind. The main purpose of his birth into the world is to wipe away the sins of all, to give peace and everlasting life to his people whom he loves so much. The angel of Lord appeared to Joseph and said “She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, for he will, save his people from their sins” (Mathew 1:21).
Today Jesus is standing at the doors of our hearts and seeking place to be born. If our doors are closed with worldly celebrations, then it is sure that we have no knowledge of the “Holy Bible”. This is possible only if we hear his word and treasure them in our hearts like Mother Mary. “But Mary treasured all the words and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2:19)
In the old testament God has spoken about his mercy to Abraham, Moses and many other prophets. “Because the Lord your God is merciful God. He will neither abandon you nor destroy you, he will not forget the covenant with your ancestors that he swore to them” ( Deut 4:31). Now at end times God is speaking about his mercy through his son Jesus. Jesus is a merciful God. His love for humankind is so much that he wishes no one should escape from his merciful love. Jesus never desires to punish sinners, but he is willing to heal them through his mercy. “He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from destruction” (Psalm 107:20)
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind”. This the greatest and first commandment of God. And the second commandment is “you shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:36-39)
In the Holy Bible what God has commanded we have to follow and there is no other option than to follow!! If we are faithful to the greatest two commandments of God then we can say that we are living according to God’s Ten commandments. “If anyone who loves God is known by him” (1 Cor 8:3). “Let us love one another because love is from God, everyone who loves God is born of God and knows God” (1 John 4:7-8)
I came to your temple seeking your help,
With heart full of hurts and with bitterness overwhelmed,
With no strength in my bones, I reached at your gate,
You are a merciful God, who never shuns the lame.
With riches of your glory and love, you saved me from death,
Hands of scars lifted my life from the hell,
Cursed life was made new with your blessings and Holy Spirit,
In Jesus alone, I find my hope for living.
He will never turn his back from the one who seek him
Jesus is the morning star of those whose hope have become dim,
Take courage, take one step towards him in his name,
Look he will come running towards you, with love and grace
Bless the Lord, you who sinners made saint,
Proclaim his deeds all the days that you live,
For his love, what in return can we give,
Our life is the only best thing that we can give back to him.

The life which we have received with great toil,
We may lose it with our words spoken, within no time,
Let us guard our lips and recall his holy name in our mind.
And this hour of temptation will pass like cloud in the sky.
The relationship with God and our neighbor is so precious,
But we do not know,we can lose them only because of our words,
Let us mind our tongue and we will stand firm,
With balanced words, let us show them honour and love.
Silence is the strongest weapon in this world,
But this world perceives it as weak and low,
But Almighty God is the one who loves peace and love,
Let us remain silent and he will fight our war.
Let our mouth only speak about Jesus,
Let our mind always count his blessings.
Let our heart always feel his love and mercy,
All our life let us adore the one who Yahweh the Almighty.
