Wisdom is knowing the best thing to do and say in any situation you find yourself in. Two areas of life that requires great wisdom to succeed in is our marriage and raising our kids to be champions. We grow in wisdom by seeking it diligently.
Proverbs 2:2-6 Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding; For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures;Then you will discern the fear of the Lord And discover the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
One of the best places to find wisdom is from those who have it demonstrated by their success. There are people around us who have great marriages and are raising good kids. Being humble enough to ask for counsel and advice from them is God’s method and plan. God gives wisdom to the humble. God gives us wisdom through other people.
Proverbs 1:5 A wise man will hear and increase in learning, And a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel,
Most people are to proud to ask for advice or counsel and they will fail, and the sad thing is their kids will fail as well.
Proverbs 1:30-32 They would not accept my counsel, They spurned all my reproof. So they shall eat of the fruit of their own way And be satiated with their own devices. For the waywardness of the naive will kill them, And the complacency of fools will destroy them.
