To Know Wisdom

Looking back over my life I’m realizing that most all of my troubles have come from not being wise. I made my biggest mistakes going headlong against the counsel of those who loved me most. No one to blame but me.

Wisdom is knowing the RayOnTreebest thing to do at each moment in time,  and doing it with the right motive and attitude. Wisdom is rooted in and springs from the fear of God (Ps 111:10); He says it is the most important thing. (Pr 4:7)

How do we get wisdom?  Simple: seek it, the way men seek money or pleasure … every day, with our whole heart. (Pr 2:4-5) Asking, praying without ceasing throughout each day, “Is this wisdom?” (Ja 1:5) And as we ask, we must be obeying wisdom: making the wisest choice we can every time we make a choice. (Pr 9:6)

Life’s tough, but it’s tougher when we’re stupid. Let’s ponder our path and walk worthy of God. The goal is not to have an easy life, but to be the kind of person to whom God will enjoy saying, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” (Mt 25:23)

One thought on “To Know Wisdom”

  1. God has been so merciful to me. My lack of wisdom was not so much rebellion but more ignorance. He’s turned so much brokenness into good. Not excusing foolishness, but so glad for His compassion and His promise of wisdom.
