Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! And whatever else you do, develop good judgment. (Proverbs 4:7 NLT)
David taught Solomon as a young boy that seeking God’s wisdom was the most important choice he could make. Solomon learned the lesson well. When God appeared to Solomon to fulfil any request, Solomon chose wisdom above all else. We should also make God’s wisdom our first choice. We don’t have to wait for God to appear to us. We can boldly ask him for wisdom today through prayer. James 1:5 assures us that God will grant our request.
Proverbs was written by Solomon about 900 BC. It was at that time the first formal schools were established. Formal writing dates back to about 3000 BC, it consisted of figures rather than writing.
How different today. Google? We all have access and opportunity to learn wisdom. Everything happens a thousand times faster.
I am so motivated in everything I do. We can’t be as slow as before. Even things at work are quicker and people have greater expectations. That’s the world today.
“Lord I pray for your pace and wisdom. Give me the opportunity to maintain the pace. I thank you for the Blessings. In Jesus name. Amen.”
