Wisdom is accumulated philosophic or scientific knowledge. The ability to discern inner qualities and relationships or insight. Common good sense or judgment. A wise attitude or course of action. How do we accumulate wisdom or knowledge? We look back on our youth and we realize that we don't do the things that we used to do in our teenage years not because we are older now but because......
We had to come to realization that how we were living and what we were doing was not only hurting ourselves but the loved ones around us. We learned the hard lessons of life through the things that we suffered because when we were young we did not have the ability to to discern the innermost qualities about the relationships that were forming with people and situations. We didn't have the good common sense to judge what was happening to us spiritually or financially.
We didn't have the wise attitude to know what course of action that we were to follow to make sure that we were not screwing up our lives and destroying the plan and purpose that God wanted to fulfill in and through us. True knowledge and wisdom can only come from the Lord! The LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed. 1Sam 2:3
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. James 1:5 When you are promoted and elevated into a position of authority your first priority must be to seek the Wisdom and Knowledge of God to know how to exercise and use the authority that has been given to you. If you look at the life of Solomon. What happened?
He was given the office of a King but he knew not how to rule the people look at what he did. O Lord God, let your word to David my father be now fulfilled, for you have made me king over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth.
Give me now wisdom and knowledge to go out and come in before this people, for who can govern this people of yours, which is so great?”
