Yesterday, I pointed to the wisdom Abraham passed on to his children and household; “to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice” (Genesis 18:19). In this blog, I will list a few of the benefits that result from gaining wisdom from God. Many times, this wisdom comes to us through persons who have spent time with God and learned from experience, the principles that wisdom teaches. Think carefully about each of these:
· Wisdom teaches us the “fear of the Lord” (Psalm 111:10; Proverbs 1:7; 9:10).
· Blessing comes to the person “who finds wisdom” (3:13).
· In gaining wisdom, we “get insight” (4:5).
· “Wisdom is pleasure to a man of understanding” (10:23).
· “By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established” (24:3).
· Wisdom will deliver the person who walks in it (28:26).
· The person “who loves wisdom makes his father glad” (29:3).
· Wisdom helps Christians walk wisely among unbelievers (Colossians 4:5).
The other side of these principles is that we suffer loss and consequences when we do not use the wisdom of God in the everyday circumstances of life. We must challenge each other to always seek His wisdom; not just for personal, marriage and parenting reasons, but for all aspects of life. Then the world will see us representing God through the use of His principles.
