Wisdom with regard to preparation. It would be a totally unwise thing for an athlete to come to a contest not prepared to engage in competition with another who is fully prepared. The unprepared competitor is surely to be on the side of defeat. If that athlete is on a team, then the team has a greater chance of being defeated. Can you imagine our president, governor, or a school teacher being unprepared before they engage in their work? Then why is it that some Christians come unprepared to services of the Lord’s church and expect the Lord to be pleased? This especially applies to men who lead the services of the local congregation.
