THE PURSUIT OF WISDOM - CHRIS' STORY

Christopher Selvey has sought after wisdom from heaven since he first began following Jesus. It was then that he began to pray the words of Psalm 25:4-5, “Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.” He resolved to be relentless in his pursuit to know God’s ways so that his life could reflect who God is to others.
