A Collect to Respect the Wisdom of Christ
Lord Jesus, whose wisdom exceeds all the great libraries and teachers of the world, grant us respect for your understanding and the desire to look to you for guidance, that we would discover your ways and your will and flourish under your teaching, through you who reigns with the Father and Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
'Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them this question: "What do you think of the Messiah? Whose son is he?" They said to him, "The son of David." He said to them, "How is it then that David by the Spirit calls him Lord, saying, 'The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet"'? If David thus calls him Lord, how can he be his son?"' - Matthew 22:41-45
