I’ve been reading Proverbs and 1st John lately, and they both encourage me to seek wisdom this and wisdom that. I always wondered how I would know if I have gotten the wisdom that I have been seeking. Well today I noticed that when I am seriously asked for wisdom and I seriously respond to that plea, I get really good feedback on my advice even though I didn’t think it was all that great. However, if I am ever trying to put out wisdom just to win an argument, or come out the better man, no wisdom to be found.
God would work that way.
Proverbs 4:7–Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
