The Benefits Of Gaining Wisdom Pt1
What in your life keeps you from wisdom? What in your heart keeps you from it?
Too proud to listen? Too lazy to review? Too stubborn to submit? Too carnal to desire it fervently? Too busy to pray? Too distracted with pleasure to seek it? Then die foolish! Wisdom will not be mocked; your calamities are coming; there will be no mercy from heaven (Pr 1:20-31). God will take away even the little you think you have (Luke 8:18).
The blessed Lord Jesus Christ, even as a child, applied himself in these very same steps (Luke 2:42-51). And by these He grew in wisdom and favor with God and men (Luke 2:52). If you follow His example and learn of Him, you will find and know the great mysteries of the universe and the hidden treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Col 2:2-3). May God bless you with the conviction to apply yourself diligently to this great treasure.
