We Need Wisdom!
“There is nothing more foolish than an act of wickedness; there is no wisdom equal to that of obeying God.” Albert Barnes
Leaving King David we move on to his son, Solomon. King Solomon is asked by Jehovah what gift he would request so that he, as King, could better serve God’s people. Solomon could have asked for many things but his request was ‘wisdom’ for ruling. God’s offer in verse 5 was met by true humility in verses 7,8. God’s reply in verse 10 was to acknowledge that Solomon could have asked for many things but chose what was best for Israel and not just for himself. God then followed up with multiple blessings and promises just like God would do! God is good! Sunday we will take a look at Biblical wisdom, Solomon’s request and how we should seek God’s wisdom in our everyday life.
I typically define wisdom at the intersection of knowledge and experience. I will explain this and hopefully share some small pieces of wisdom Sunday – don’t miss this one! See you Sunday,
“Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.” Charles Spurgeon
