What is a proverb? Pro-verb
My Bible study this week focused on Proverbs 14 and the 5 things that differentiate the wise from the not-so-wise, namely:
I’m learning that wisdom is not about sitting back and calling yourself wise. Wisdom is defined by action!
Wisdom is about doing the things that demonstrate your wisdom. Wisdom is being humble, actively seeking to increase your knowledge base. Wisdom is not taking unnecessary risks just for the rush, it is about being serene and confident that God is with you so you don’t have to live at a frantic pace. And above all, it is being kind to others, showing love and compassion and acceptance even when someone isn’t as wise as you wish they were.
The Bible says when God asked Solomon what he would like above anything else, he asked for wisdom and knowledge.
And maybe I will be wise enough to make that same request.
