Growing up without a dad, Rob felt he missed out on a lot of practical wisdom that fathers often pass on to their children. Not wanting anyone to lack important life skills, Rob made a series of practical “Dad, How Do I?” videos demonstrating everything from how to put up a shelf to how to change a tire. With his kind compassion and warm style, Rob has become a YouTube sensation, amassing millions of subscribers.

Many of us long for the expertise of a parental figure to teach us valuable skills, as well as help us navigate difficult situations. Moses needed some wisdom after he and the Israelites fled captivity in Egypt and were establishing themselves as a nation. Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, saw the strain that settling disputes among the people was having on Moses. So, Jethro gave Moses thoughtful advice on how to delegate responsibility in leadership (Exodus 18:17-23). Moses “listened to his father-in-law and did everything he said” (v. 24).

God knows we all need wisdom. Some may be blessed with godly parents but all of us can ask God, who gives wisdom to all who ask Him (James 1:5). He’s also provided wisdom throughout the pages of Scripture. In the book of Proverbs, for example, we’re reminded that when we humbly and sincerely listen to the wise, we “will be counted among the wise” (Proverbs 19:20) and have wisdom to share with others.

Dear and welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread.

Today's reading titled the need for wisdom was written by Lisa Sandra growing up without a dad.

Rob felt he missed out on a lot of practical wisdom that fathers often pass on to their children, not wanting anyone to lack important life skills.

Rob made a series of practical dad, how do I videos demonstrating everything from how to put up a shelf to how to change a tire with his kind, compassionate and warm style. Rob has become a YouTube sensation amassing millions of subscribers. Many of us long for the expertise of a parental figure to teach us valuable skills as well as help us navigate difficult situations. Moses needed some wisdom after he and the Israelites fled captivity in Egypt and were establishing themselves as a nation. Jethro Moses his father-in-law saw the strain that settling disputes among the people was having on Moses. So Jethro gave Moses thoughtful advice on how to delegate responsibility and leadership. Exodus chapter 18 verse 24 says Moses listened to his father-in-law and did everything he said. God knows we all need wisdom. Some may be blessed with godly parents who offer wise advice and some aren't. But God's wisdom is available to all who ask. He's also provided wisdom throughout the pages of Scripture which reminds us that when we humbly and sincerely listened to the wise, we will be counted among the wise and have wisdom to share with others. Today's Scripture reading is from Exodus chapter 18 verses 17 through 24 Moses his father-in-law replied what you are doing is not good you and these people who come to you will only wear yourselves out.

The work is too heavy for you you cannot handle it alone.

Listen now to me and I will give you some advice and may God be with you. You must be the people's representative before God and bring their disputes to him teach them, his decrees and instructions and show them the way they are to live and how they are to behave but select capable men from all the people.

Men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds 50s and tens have them serve as judges for the people at all times, but have them bring every difficult case to you the simple cases they can decide themselves that will make your load lighter because they will share with you if you do this and God so commands you will be able to stand the strain and all these people will go home satisfied Moses listened to his father-in-law and did everything he said. Let's pray dear God, many children are without fathers who care for them who look out for their well-being and are good role models. Teachers and friends as followers of Jesus. We all have a heavenly father fill that void. They feel by sending them godly men to live as examples of faithful husbands, fathers, and men of God to build the kind of foundation they need to become the very same thank you Lord it's in Jesus name we pray.

Amen. Thanks for listening today. My name is Tony Collier and today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
