The Lord Gives Wisdom

When it comes to wisdom and understanding, God is the source of both. Solomon writes:

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
    and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. – Proverbs 9:10 (NIV)

James, the brother of Jesus, wrote in his letter:

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. – James 1:5 (NIV)

How do we acquire wisdom? By asking the Lord. If you want to make wise choices and make better decisions, you need to ask the Lord for wisdom. That means humbling yourself before Him and seeking Him and His wisdom. You can learn quite a bit from people as far as knowledge is concerned, but if you want to be wise, you need to go to the source of wisdom and that is God. Take a little bit of time to pray today and ask the Lord for wisdom. He will generously give you all that you need to be wise.
