Words of Wisdom

Benefits of Wisdom - (Proverbs 2:1-6) 

2 My son, if you accept my words
    and store up my commands within you,
turning your ear to wisdom
    and applying your heart to understanding—
indeed, if you call out for insight
    and cry aloud for understanding,
and if you look for it as for silver
    and search for it as for hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord
    and find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
    from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

What does it mean to:
–Accept my words
–Store up my commands
–Turn your ear to wisdom
–Apply your heart to understanding
–Call our for insight
–Cry aloud
–Look for it
–Search for it as hidden treasure

Accept my words. Get into God’s Word.

Store up my commands. Let God’s Word get into you.

Turn you ear to wisdom. Listen to wise instruction from God and wise people.

Apply your heart to understanding. Apply wise instruction to your current situation.

Call out for insight. Ask God for insights you wouldn’t think of on your own.

Cry aloud. Pray out loud over situations where you need wisdom.

Look for it. Actively look for God’s revelations. Look for the hand of God in everything.

Search for it as hidden treasure. Treat wisdom as one of the greatest treasures you could acquire.

Pursue Wisdom – a true search for knowledge, understanding and wisdom will lead you to God, and then you’ll understand the fear (reverence) of the Lord. – Pastor Chuck Smith

Wisdom is the ability to cope with the demands of life in healthy and constructive ways. The book of Proverbs is rich in biblical wisdom to help guide us to meet these daily demands.
