Book of Wisdom

What is wisdom? According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary wisdom is described as a wise attitude, belief, or course of action and also the teachings of the ancient wise men.

Based on this definition the entire Bible is a book of wisdom and a manual on how to deal with all of the trials of our daily lives. It contains stories that we can relate to and helps us to understand our actions and thoughts so that we can cope better with the situations we encounter and the decisions we have to make. Utilizing the Bible consistently as a guide can keep you from making unnecessary mistakes that will slow down your progress towards your reaching your ultimate purpose.

Proverbs is the book that is a great source for daily wisdom. Proverbs was written by Solomon son of David, king of Israel. Schedule a convenient time in the morning to read a chapter in Proverbs daily. Read the chapter which corresponds with the date to make it simple. As you do this on a daily basis, month after month, the wisdom will sink into your mind and spirit and you will begin to be able to recite the scriptures from memory.

A fundamental key to your journey in seeking wisdom and knowledge is found in Proverbs 1:7.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Wisdom is a resource that is made available to all Christians.

James 1:5 states “If any of you should lack wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”
We only need to ask which seems simple but actually we also have to want it. In addition to wanting and asking, we then have to do.

As written in James 1:22, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”

Reading your Bible on a daily basis, seeking the wisdom of God, using this knowledge to apply to your actions when making decisions will allow you to have less stress because you have a mentor that has provided principles for you to follow.

Psalm 37:23 states "The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way."

Set aside time daily to read and absorb His word and you will have a clear understanding of how we are to live our lives as we represent the light of the world.

God Bless!
