Love you all, praying for you,
God said, “Above all else get wisdom.” Why? What good is wisdom for you? God is good. He never tells you to do something that’s not good for you. And if He says do this above all else. It must be good above all else. What if you had wisdom? What if your life was built upon, fully reflected, and emanated the wisdom of God? What would you look like? What would your life be like? What are the benefits of wisdom? Why bother to get it above all else?
Eleven Things You Need To Know About Wisdom
#1 – God said, “Above All Else Get It” Proverbs 4:7 – Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. What is wisdom? Wisdom – the right use or exercise of knowledge. Wise – to be or make or act circumspect and hence intelligent. (Circumspect – looking on all sides… cautious, prudent, watchful on all sides, examining carefully all the circumstances that may affect a determination or a measure to be adopted.) Wise – to deal prudently, skillfully, having good success, to have understanding, to behave oneself and consider wisely, to guide wittingly. Having knowledge, having the power to discern and judge correctly. Discerning between what is true and false, what is proper and improper. Discrete and judicious in the application of knowledge. Choosing laudable ends and the best means to accomplish them, skilled, learned, judicious, well adapted to produce good effect, prosperous. God said get wisdom. Proverbs 19:8 – He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; he who cherishes understanding prospers. Wisdom is speaking in Proverbs 8:32 – Now then my sons, listen to me; blessed are those who keep my ways. Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not ignore it. Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the LORD. But whoever fails to find me harms himself; all who hate me love death. Proverbs 18:15 – The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge; the ears of the wise seek it out. This is a pursuit that God commands. Get wisdom. Proverbs 24:13 – Eat honey, my son, for it is good; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste. Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. The first thing you need to know about wisdom… Is get some! Above all else, get wisdom! Value it, pursue it, heed it, walk in it. You will be so very glad you did. It will make you prosper, and protect you from harm. God gives it, and gives it to those who value it. Above all else – get wisdom.
