Get Hold of Wisdom

Key Verse

“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” Proverbs 4:7

Text — Proverbs 4:7-13


Wisdom is defined by Merriam Webstr Dictionary as, “ability to discern inner qualities and relationships.” It is having a good sense of
judgment, possessing a wise attitude, belief or course of action. There are two kinds of wisdom (i) Wisdom of the wicked (world) which makes someone think or plan to cheat or carry out evil against another person or people. (ji) Wisdom of God which makes someone think or plan well for other people.
A child who is worldly wise will always do bad things to other children or other people anywhere he or she goes. God is not happy about that. Godly wisdom will make a child to fear God and run away from evil. He does not join others to do bad things – God is happy with him/her. Andrew, who was not a friend of Jesus, wanted to cheat his parents. He lied to them that his teacher asked the pupils to bring money for a book which was not included in the school list of books earlier. His parents believed him, unknown to them that he planned to buy an immoral video game which some of his classmates have been talking about. He thought it was wise to have told the lie that it was additional schooltext book.
His parents found out that it was a lie, they did not give him the money and he was ashamed of himself for taking and acting on the ungodly advice of his friends. He was sorry for his sins and surrendered his life to Jesus who is able to help him shun worldly wisdom. Turn away from your life of deceit today and Jesus will give you wisdom to live right.
