I wonder if you can remember a decision you made or some words you spoke that you now recognize were wrong. We’ve all made wrong decisions and said things we wished we had not said, and those things linger—sometimes for a long time—causing all kinds of issues and problems that we have to deal with.
Can you imagine being such a wise person that you always make wise decisions, never speak foolish words, and are always perceptive, discerning, and have wise judgment? Just imagine how different your life could be if you were a very wise person!
Here’s the good news: You can become a wise person. God wants all his children—those of us who are born from above—to be wise and discerning, and he has provided all that we need to be this way. However, this wisdom will only come to us if we pursue it, desire it, and acquire it. And how do we do this? Through God’s Word and prayer.
That’s why I am encouraging you to read the book of Proverbs. There are 31 chapters in Proverbs, so by reading this book daily, you will read a chapter in Proverbs every day and will be gaining wisdom. I’m asking you to make a commitment to the Lord that you will seek wisdom by reading a chapter in Proverbs each day, journal what that chapter teaches you about wisdom, and then pray that wisdom into your life.
My friends, this could really be a pivotal moment in your life, where you intentionally seek to be a wise person by pouring God’s wisdom into your mind and praying it into your life. The book of Proverbs was written for the purpose of giving us wisdom and instruction—it’s the best book of wisdom ever written!
Also, we’ve prepared some lovely cards with Words of Wisdom from the Bible that you can easily take with you as daily reminders to seek God’s wisdom. You’ll find those cards on our website or we’re glad to mail them to you.
