Self, listen up. You ain't wise enough to impact other people's lives all on your own.

Kurt, I said to myself, Kurt I said.. How can you like.. go to Him in prayer asking for wisdom if you already have all the answers? Please never think or feel like you have all the wisdom, Mr. Self, cuz you really don't. Don't be wise in your own eyes.  

"He who knows not and knows not that he knows not is a fool; avoid him. He who knows not and knows that he knows not is a student; teach him. He who knows and knows not that he knows is asleep; wake him. He who knows and knows that he knows is a wise man; follow him." ~ Sanskr

(Last line: Might be so. Should read: He who knows some n is ready to ditch His world's kinda wisdom, and knows there's a lot of real wisdom that God knows that he doesn't yet know a wise man; follow Him.)

"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."  James 1:5

Obtaining wisdom from God by faith..and I mean wisdom that's apart from worldly wisdom..along with humble transparency, careful listening, good questions to build relationship, with honesty in explaining what you've experienced in light of the Gospel and whole panoply of the Scriptures—these are needed when you witness to someone about Christ's saving love and finished work.

Best move yet...get to know Him who is the Source of all wisdom in a personal kinda way, that wisdom that works to help people around the entire globe - Jesus Christ. Ask Him. The Bible says, "The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise." Proverbs  11:30
