Divine Wisdom

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get

understanding (Proverbs 4:7)

The Webster's Unabridged Dictionary defines wisdom as “knowledge, and the capacity to make due use of it.” Wisdom is important because wise decisions often prevent heartache.

They can prevent difficult situations from developing or getting worse. It is instructive that in

2 Chronicles 1:8-12 when Solomon asked and received wisdom from God, he was in addition also given wealth, riches and honour. One plausible explanation for this, aside from God’s generosity, is that a wise person can be trusted to do the right things with wealth and riches. Without wisdom wealth and power can be abused with hurtful outcomes – which is

why Solomon describes it as the principal thing which is superior to riches and power.

Furthermore, James 3:17-18 gives us a catalogue of the moral qualities of divine wisdom by

stating that ‘the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to

be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits…’ This links divine wisdom to the nature of God

and the working of the blessed Holy Spirit.

As we focus on the pursuit of divine wisdom in the month of November, this comes with a

prayer that we shall never be numbered among those who the bible describe as foolish.

Walking in wisdom will ensure that we take the right decisions and get the right outcomes in

every situation.
