“When the path of wisdom is known and learnt, it becomes a drive for ANY life”
- WHO IS A WISE MAN?
A man can obtain the result of the wise without being one yet, though his action for which he had learn to obtain that result can be likened to being wise. One of the ways to become wise is to identify a wise man, to learn and to also follow his footsteps and actions. From scriptures we see that a wise men is clearly defined
James 3:13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
Wisdom can be demonstrated by good conversation through our works. The path of wisdom can be learnt and be properly understood. It takes wisdom to recognize wisdom. One of the marks of a fool is his inability to recognize wisdom.
Understand that wisdom is an active force and virtue that directs the way one operates and determine an outstanding outcome. The factor of the fear of God in wisdom makes it complete and differentiates it from smartness and intelligence. You can be smart and be a fool lacking wisdom. Wisdom is not learnt in the four walls of school. Rightly defined is the ability to use knowledge right. It takes more than information gathering to handle life. It takes wisdom to handle crisis and the challenges of life. We understand from God’s word that wisdom is better than strength and even the weapon of war
Ecclesiastes 9:16 Then said I, WISDOM IS BETTER THAN STRENGTH: nevertheless the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.
Ecclesiastes 9:18 WISDOM IS BETTER THAN WEAPONS OF WAR: but one sinner destroyeth much good.
We see that the key to life is wisdom and not just wisdom but the wisdom of God. Scripture made it clear that wisdom has a price
Job 28:18 No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: FOR THE PRICE OF WISDOM IS ABOVE RUBIES.
- THE PHASE OF WISDOM
We therefore need to watch out for wisdom because not all are from the Lord. When wisdom is sensual then it’s obviously not from God
James 3:15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
When wisdom is demonstrated in these manner, we see that is not the wisdom that comes from above because wisdom is a good thing and it comes from above
James 1:17 EVERY GOOD GIFT AND EVERY PERFECT GIFT IS FROM ABOVE, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
We understand that wisdom that is from above is in this wise
James 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
- THE WISE GIVE HEED TO INSTRUCTIONS
The hardest person on earth today is a man that does not listen to instructions. We therefore understand that only fools don’t listen to instructions but is the meal of the wise.
Proverbs 9:9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
God’s word today is full of instructions on how to do many things that will make people to discern wisdom in us. A total disrespect or not giving acknowledgement to wisdom is a mark of destruction in life. Understand today that being smart and being sensual does not approve of wisdom but giving heed to God’s word is a pointer to wisdom.
