I’m sure so many of you, like me, wisdom is pictured by an elderly man or woman with years of knowledge on his or her face. The experiences in life good and bad are deep in the lines. There’s a twinkle of knowledge in his/her eyes and transparency as stories are told. This makes you want to stop what you are doing and give your undivided attention, to glean as much as possible from their words. Words that have been chosen wisely over the years.
Experience is one way to gain wisdom, but learning through experience opens up the doors for good and bad lessons. Having to go down the wrong road only to find that in the end, you are in a worse place than when you started! I don’t know about you, but I would be a very sad and depressed person if I continued to do that over and over again! Trying so hard to get it right, but each time feeling defeated!
In these 5 studies, we will work our way through what the Bible says in Proverbs about Wisdom. How and where to get it, why we want it, and What to do with it!
