What are some of the benefits of wisdom?
“Blessed is the one who finds wisdom and the one who gets understanding for the gain from her is better than gain from silver and her profit better than gold.” Proverbs 3:13-14. ESV
There’s no limit to your ability to gain wisdom or to give it out. This passage and in other places in Proverbs, we find that wisdom is something we get from God, not just from our experience. And we can give it without limits. Our wisdom can be used to serve and bless others. But I’m talking about the wisdom that comes from God.
Wisdom is referred to as a lady. The Message says in verse 14, “She’s worth far more than money in the bank; her friendship is better than a big salary.”
Wisdom comes from our ability to abide in Jesus. When we’re plugged into our relationship with Jesus, and we listen to the Holy Spirit, God gives us his wisdom. We can then share that wisdom by our actions. We don’t need to share it with our words necessarily.
Today, let’s practice gaining and listening to the wisdom from God.
