What IS wisdom…?

Your counselors will tell you that your goal is “self esteem.” Your professors will tell you to question everything. They go further than that, they “suggest” ideas that are or the world and contrary to the truth of God. If you’re vulnerable and hurting, you’ll tend to believe them. The media will present you with whatever agenda they’re fostering. The world will tell you “whatever feels good, do it.”

“For the wisdom of this world
is foolishness  with God.”
1 Corinthians 3:19

But God tells you:

“The fear of the Lord is the BEGINNING of wisdom,
and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
Proverbs 9:10

“Forsake foolishness and live;
and go in the way of understanding.”
Proverbs 9:6

One day in my prayer time this question was posed to my heart: “How would you define wisdom?”

I thought long and hard and couldn’t come up with an answer. So I asked, “How WOULD you?”

“Wisdom is the ability to see a thing from God’s perspective.”

Seek HIM for wisdom.
