Value wisdom

neglect wisdom“Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.” Proverbs 4:5-6

Wisdom is something we need to be sure not to forget. More than anything else, God’s wisdom will protect and keep us, no matter what we face.

We invest so much time in gaining knowledge, learning new skills, developing our talents and earning money. But how much time do we invest in seeking wisdom? It will make a much bigger difference in our lives and success than these other things.

Wisdom from experience is not complete. We need the wisdom that comes from God, and according to James 1:5, God is ready to give it to us liberally.

Prayer: Lord, help me to seek Your wisdom and not rely on my own ideas, especially when making crucial decisions. Help me to value the wisdom You give me.
