Becoming Wise

Wisdom is highly prized in God’s economy. He says we should do everything possible to get it and give up anything necessary to acquire it.

God’s wisdom is based in relationship with Him. When we ask God for wisdom He gives it in great measure. Wisdom requires us to look at what’s really down deep in our heart – our motive for the action we think we should take. We have to give up pride to get wisdom. Humility and wisdom are partners.

This kind of wisdom is based in asking good questions of the right people. I ask God first, I ask people who are for me but won’t just say what I want them to say and then I ask myself what all of that good counsel adds up to.

How do you get wisdom?
