If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not;
and it shall be given him. James 1:5
A person once said, “You must be wise before the act [ion], not after it”. Wisdom is a quality, not often discussed, studied, or pursued. And yet, we marvel at those individuals, whose lives seem to shine with a brilliance untarnished by daily life. The very air around them is electric. But they are mere mortals, such as we are, and yet, they appear to have found the golden ring; the answers to all questions.
But how? Perhaps, it is because they have discovered the precious gift of wisdom and revelation.
Wisdom is understanding, insight, knowledge, and good old common sense. It is the platform for creating a life attuned to God, and His standards. Wisdom penetrates our souls, and we comprehend more of Him, who is our all in all.
“For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding”. Proverbs 2:6
A life rooted in wisdom makes the choices, challenges and changes easier to govern. So before you act, listen to the one who knows and see all.
