Wisdom Perspective

Scripture

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.”  ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭9:10‬ ‭ESV‬

Observation

Wisdom begins with reverence for the Lord and insight with knowing the Holy One. 

Application

Underderstanding our place in the universe is the beginning place for wisdom. When we realize we are not the center and we rely on the goodness and the sustaining power of God, our Creator,  then we have discovered wisdom. God is the center of the universe and the life we live. It is in Him where we find our purpose.  Once we discover this truth then decisions will not be about ourselves and personal interest only but they will be guided by what brings God honor and glory.  This is wisdom. 

“‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “‘For we are indeed his offspring.’ Acts 17:28

Prayer

God, our Creator we glorify you and seek your wisdom for in you we live and move and have our being.
