Wednesday Wisdom—A Good Place to Start

Wisdom, many think they have it, many want it, but true wisdom is found in one source; God. Solomon understood the value of wisdom, and the source from which wisdom comes. When he could have asked God for anything he could dream of, Solomon asked only for God to give him wisdom and knowledge to lead the Israelites properly. (See 2 Chronicles 1: 7-13.)

God honored Solomon’s unselfish request.

So, to start off this portion of my new blog format, I will begin with Proverbs 1:1-7, ESV:

1The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel:

2To know wisdom and instruction,
to understand words of insight,
3to receive instruction in wise dealing,
in righteousness, justice, and equity;
4to give prudence to the simple,
knowledge and discretion to the youth—
Let the wise hear and increase in learning,
and the one who understands obtain guidance,
6to understand a proverb and a saying,
the words of the wise and their riddles.

7The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Wisdom is built on the foundation of the fear of the LORD. Nothing more. Nothing less. Anything other than that is foolishness.
