Wisdom. How do we get wisdom? What is wisdom? These are questions that have plagued people for Generations. In the Book of Proverbs, we find many answers to address these questions and several others. We’re going to start working our way through the Book of Proverbs, so that we can understand what is wisdom and how can we have wisdom in our lives. Reading Proverbs chapter 1, verses 1 through 7, we see that wisdom is certainly something that lots of people want to have for lots of different reasons.
In verse seven, Solomon writes that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. As we start our journey toward wisdom, having a healthy fear and respect and awe of the Lord, is where our journey begins. Only through understanding who God is and how that impacts our lives, will we be able to understand truly how to be wise. Are we ready to begin this journey? Do we understand and have reverence and respect for the God who created the universe? Without that, we will never be able to find wisdom.
