"Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding." Proverbs 4:5-7
IN JESUS TODAY!
Our goal has been set, "Get wisdom" this is our goal and where shall we get it? We only need to look above! As it is written, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth all men liberally, and abraideth not; and it shall be given him." James 1:5 Now, some might think, "I don't want that kind of wisdom, some think that if you look above, you will become too heavenly minded to be any earthly good, but they misunderstand wisdom, so called worldly wisdom is not wisdom at all, because it is not pure wisdom. God's wisdom is pure wisdom, as we read, "But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. James 3:17 It matters that we get wisdom and pure wisdom, not wisdom that is corrupt or falling short of what is good for us. "Not with fleshly wisdom" 2 Corinthians 1:12 There is pure wisdom of God, and there is fleshly or worldly wisdom of man. We want pure wisdom, just like we want pure water, or pure air, because we won't settle for that which is not good for us!
Wisdom is the principal thing! We should not accept any substitute for God's pure wisdom. God's pure wisdom is in his words, as it is written, "The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times." Psalm 12:6 "Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth." God's words are the right wisdom that we need! When we get these, truly understanding them, we shall have real wisdom and real success!
