Welcome to Talk Jesus Clint!
A joy to welcome another Brother in Christ Jesus to this online community of Christian believers.
I hope you will find the fellowship and growth in our Lord that you seek.
As far as gleaning wisdom....may I suggest you ask by going to the source of all wisdom, who is God.
Just remember verse 6 which is the very stipulation that causes many of us to stumble. Trust that He will do what He says.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. James 1:5-6
And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You. Psalm 9:10
