David was roasting coffee beans last night when the smoke detector went off. (We buy green coffee beans, roast them, and grind them daily.)

“Are you going to start over?” I asked.

“No, they are just a dark roast.”

“Burnt? They don’t get any darker than that?”

What does that have to do with today’s verse? Nothing, I’m just a wiseguy. But today I read about a man of unusual wisdom.

1 Chronicles 26:14, “…The north gate was assigned to his son, Zechariah, a man of unusual wisdom.” NLT

I wonder if the last phrase was added before he was the gate-keeper or after? If his wisdom was already established, was he surprised that God chose him as a gate-keeper? Or did his wisdom become well-known after he started guarding at the gate? I don’t have the answer.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for all of the jobs you have given me to do. I pray that I show wisdom in every area. 

In Jesus Name,
