Wisdom

Good Morning World!
I just finished reading the 3rd chapter of Proverbs, what a mind filling scripture!  The main gist of the passage is wisdom: its value, potential and necessity.  Too, often I meet people today who don't display a shred of wisdom in anything that they do.  They just blindly fumble through life expecting that everything is going to work out for them.  Sorry, to burst your bubble, but even though I believe everyone has a calling in life, I also believe that we have the ability to shape and possibly even change our destiny.  God gave us free will, and Adam and Eve demonstrated early on that we must work at utilizing wisdom.

The scripture said that God created the world and the universe with wisdom.  Showing that understanding future ramifications of things is smart.  I realize that we may not have the fortitude or brain power to look into the future and see what is going to happen, but we do have at least 10,000 years of history we can bank on! Understanding what happens when we set certain things in motion we give you a good idea as to what will happen in the future.

For example: if you send your child to the store to pick up an item you need to finish dinner, but you don't tell them exactly where it is in the store or how to get help if they can't find the item - wisdom would tell you that you are probably going to get a phone call from the store, or you were better off going yourself.  However, if you basically draw a map for your child then you can foresee that your child will be successful in bringing the said item home.

Wisdom is understanding and planning!  Another for example before I sign off: We are trying to teach my oldest son the value of saving.  We have recently started an allowance for him, and decided that if he would like to have his own laptop then he can save for it.  On top of that he helps me do some of my cleaning contracts and so we give him a little extra.  However, he is already biting at the bit to go to the store and by something,  Wisdom will show him that waiting and saving is better than buying and throwing out.  Too often we opt for the cheaper version or something lesser than what we really want because we can get it quicker. The good things in life don't always come cheap, and if you buy cheap you will soon find out cheap is actually more expensive in the long run.  Use wisdom and self control - you will soon see that you have a more satisfied life!

Yours for Christ,
Pastor Fred
