Lord, grant us wisdom to understand your Word. Shine your light upon our hearts and minds, and give us a discerning spirit to grow in the grace and knowledge of your truth each day. Amen.

Did eating the fruit make Adam and Eve wise?
What do you think makes a person wise in God's eyes? Who are some wise people you know?

What words would you use to describe God's love for us?
Draw a picture to show your favorite part of God's creation!
