Where you find wisdom

wisdomNone of us wants to be dumb. We all need wisdom.

  • To make godly decisions
  • To raise children who know the Lord
  • To love others in helpful ways
  • To glorify God in word and deed

Who’s the wisest man who ever lived? Solomon? He asked God for wisdom when he could have asked for anything (1 Kings 3:9). He subsequently authored much of the wisdom literature in the Bible.

Yet someone wiser than Solomon is here: Jesus (Matthew 12:42). In the Bible we typically seek His wisdom in the gospels where we see Him teaching about wisdom and living wisely (Matthew 13:54).

But Jesus can also be found in the wisdom literature of the Old Testament (2 Timothy 3:15).

Read the rest here for

  • The wisdom of humility (Job)
  • The wisdom of worship (Psalms)
  • The wisdom of the way (Proverbs)
  • The wisdom of hope (Ecclesiastes)
  • The wisdom of connection (Song of Solomon)

    Lisa, I thought I posted my comment on your post after reading it the first time. Not sure what I did wrong. But let me say again how much I like what subject you posted on. I seek wisdom all the time which is one reason I read yours and others post. In Proverbs it tell us to “walk with the wise”. Thanks for the reminders on where to find wisdom.

      Your comment did take at the post on Do Not Depart. I appreciate what you shared there. And I’m honored by what you’re sharing here. I want to walk with the wise, too, and I’m thankful for those wise among me, not only among my face-to-face friends but also in friends like you online. Thanks, Betty.
