Start the week off Being Wise
Sir Godfrey Gregg
Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. Proverbs 13:20
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5
With the new week, each of us wants to make wise choices. Wisdom comes from God. That is good news to most of us. Many people think that intelligence and wisdom are the same thing, but there is a big difference. Intelligence means implementing the gained knowledge wisely. It can be learned by gaining more experience in a field. Wisdom is something that doesn’t come automatically with age. Even a child can be wiser than an adult or mature person. Wisdom is given to those who ask for it. Look again at what James 1:5 says.
Proverbs 13:20 says another way you gain wisdom is from the friends that are around you. If you are around people who make dumb choices, guess what? You will make them too. If you are always around people who make wise choices, you will start to make wise choices.
Wisdom is what you need to start this week off right! The Bible says: The one who gets wisdom loves life; the one who cherishes understanding will soon prosper. Proverbs 19:8
What is stopping you from asking God for wisdom? Do you desire the wisdom that comes from God?
Who do you spend time with brethren? Would you consider them wise? Do you need to make some changes in the friends that you surround yourself with? It is something you should consider.
