On Pentecost God poured out his spirit on the church. One thing God's spirit is intended to do in each of us is aid us in gaining and using wisdom. In this the first of a two part sermon Mr. Smith shows how the Bible defines wisdom and that we are expected to seek wisdom and then use it in living our lives.
