“For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.”

Proverbs 2:6

Often we hear people question the wisdom of those in authority over us. It’s easy to point an accusing finger at government officials, bosses, pastors, teachers, or board members and say they are unfit to lead.

In reality, though, we’re focusing our attention in the wrong place. Instead of being critical of others, we need to make sure wisdom is present in our own lives. The Lord wants us all to have wisdom. He allows us all to gain the wisdom that he wants us to have. But how do we get such wisdom? First we need a “fear of the Lord” and a “knowledge of the Holy One” (Prov. 9:10). The best way to acquire this knowledge is by reading God’s Word.

We must also ask the Lord for His help if we are to gain wisdom. James wrote, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God” (James1:5). Just as Solomon asked God for wisdom to help him lead God’s people so we must ask as well and constantly rely on Him if we are to walk a godly path.

Proverbs 10 tells us that when we are wise we will bring joy to our parents (v.1), we will work in a timely manner (v.5), and we will know how to accept authority (v.8). Wisdom is the key to living in life. The more wisdom you gain the further you can make it in life. Without gaining wisdom in life we can’t go nowhere in life.
