On the top of the heights beside the say, where the paths meet, stands Wisdom [skillful and godly]; at the gates at the entrance of the town, at the coming in at the doors, she cries out.—Proverbs 8:2-3
Along the way on our journey through life, we will have to make many decisions, and we will always get into trouble if we make them emotionally or according to what we think or want.
God wants us to make wise decisions. I believe having wisdom is choosing to do now what we will be happy with later.
Proverbs says that wisdom is calling out to us. You must walk in God’s wisdom and realize that the choices you make today will affect your tomorrow. So many people never enjoy life because they’re always dealing with messes resulting from a lack of wisdom.
Don’t do something selfish, gambling that things will turn out right. Wisdom does not gamble; it invests in the future. Wisdom doesn’t settle for instant gratification. Instead, it follows God into a better tomorrow.
So what about you? Are you walking in wisdom today? If you’re not, the good news is that wisdom is already calling out to you. God’s ready and willing to provided you with His wisdom. Just ask Him for it and make the decisions that will invest in a godly future.
