|Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.|
Go For God’s Wisdom
The Bible tells us that Christ is “made unto us wisdom, and
righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption” (1 Corinthians 1:30,
KJV). Notice how Jesus as our wisdom comes first. Wisdom is given first importance!
Now, I’m not talking about knowledge. There is a difference between
wisdom and knowledge. Knowledge puffs up (1 Corinthians 8:1). It can
make one proud and arrogant. But wisdom will make you humble and
teachable. You can read extensively and accumulate a lot of knowledge,
but still lack wisdom and make foolish and costly decisions. So go for
Listen to what the Bible says about prioritizing God’s wisdom:
“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your
getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; she
will bring you honor, when you embrace her. She will place on your head
an ornament of grace [unmerited favor]; a crown of glory she will
deliver to you” (Proverbs 4:7–9).
Beloved, prioritize getting God’s wisdom. Promotion, honor and good success all come as a result of having received His wisdom!
