Good Day Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Think with me of the wisest person we know. How does this person demonstrate his or her wisdom? The Bible speaks frequently of wisdom with wisdom in Old Testament writings being a complex idea, especially in the book of Proverbs. Even though it is difficult to define simply, Marvin Tate attempted to do so in the Broadman Bible Commentary when he stated: “Wisdom in the book of Proverbs is very much concerned with the art of good living; the techniques of the well-lived life. On a broad basis of experience, tradition, and piety, he seeks to master life and live successfully, making the correct ethical decisions.” The book of Proverbs is God’s book on how to wise up and live, and is often called His “treasure book of wisdom.” In the next number of days, let us look at “wisdom,” primarily as it is used in the book of Proverbs and Old Testament.
Do you know someone you consider to have wisdom? Is this person’s wisdom spiritual or worldly?
“The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel; To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding.” (Proverbs 1:1-2)
