For wisdom is far more valuable than rubies. Nothing you desire can compare with it. Proverbs 8:11
If you are above a certain age, you remember “The Pepsi Challenge.” The Pepsi Challenge was a long-running marketing campaign by Pepsi comparing their soda to other sodas. The challenge was straightforward. Participants were asked to take a blind taste where they would be given a cup of Pepsi and a cup of another soda and asked to pick which one was better. Every time, at least in the commercials, the person would pick Pepsi. But there was something very interesting about the choice of picking Pepsi.
What was always interesting is how many people would say that before they tried the test, something else was their favorite drink, but now it was Pepsi. They came into the taste test with a favorite in mind, but their minds changed when they tried something new. When we try something new, it always has the potential to change our minds. Sometimes we have done the same things for so long that we no longer even try new things.
Friends, now is the time to try wisdom. When we try wisdom, it will sometimes force us to try new things, sometimes give up old things, and occasionally show us that there was always better available. So today, take the wisdom challenge. Try something new, and see if it may actually be better than what you have always done.
