Gathering Wisdom Needed for Life
May 25, 2023

Today’s 333 Devotional: “Gathering Wisdom Needed for Life”

Years ago, I read two proverbs that resonated so much within me that I have lived my life and conducted my responsibilities as a teacher of God’s word based a lot upon them.

  • “Buy the truth, and do not sell it, also wisdom and instruction and understanding.” (Proverbs 23:23)
  • “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.” (Proverbs 4:7)

What I know, and what I’ve learned is that I will never be able to get enough wisdom. Therefore, I search out from others the wisdom they’ve found from their journeys of faith, and time spent in God’s word. And while I may not fully agree with some of their conclusions, it has kept me sharp and open to learning more about God’s word, along with His will and way for my life, and in the world we live.

And while such a search for wisdom is good, as pointed out by Solomon when he said, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17 NIV), the true wisdom we need to navigate this journey of faith, and to have a heart that is wise, comes only from God.

But how are we to gain such wisdom? How do we gain the wisdom to deal with life? How do we deal with the obvious shortage of wisdom in our world today? In short, how can we gain a heart that is filled with wisdom?

Does God just open our heads and pour wisdom into them when needed?

I want to use a simple method to help us gain a wisdom-filled heart. It comes from one of the Bible’s most recognizable passages found in the book of Proverbs.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs. 3:5-6)

Life creates a demand for wisdom, which God supplies when His conditions are met.

This Sunday in our Christian’s Heart series, we’ll look at a “Wisdom-Filled Heart.” Come and Join Us on this exciting study as we look more closely into Proverbs 3:5-6.
