Seek Wisdom

Psychology Today describes wisdom this way: "It can be difficult to define, but people generally recognize it when they encounter it. Psychologists pretty much agree it involves an integration of knowledge, experience, and deep understanding that incorporates tolerance for the uncertainties of life as well as its ups and downs. There's an awareness of how things play out over time, and it confers a sense of balance."

God's word has much to say about wisdom including these insights:

"For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6

"For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul." Proverbs 2:10

"I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths." Proverbs 4:11

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10

"When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom." Proverbs 11:2

"A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense." Proverbs 19:11 

He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and is the key to this treasure." Isaiah  33:6 

 "It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption." 1 Corinthians 1:30

"If any of you lacks wisdom you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." James 1:5 

 Surely wisdom is a great gift from God that every person could benefit from and should desire. It is not something that can be purchased, measured, stored, manufactured, or traded. It is a precious God given blessing that is not to be taken for granted. 

Thank you God for wisdom. Without it life would not be  as beautiful as it is.
