Proverbs 9:12 NIV

By December 9, 2021No Comments

“If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer.”

“I don’t think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday” (Abraham Lincoln). Solomon and Lincoln seemed to have a similar view on the subject of wisdom. Changes people make through their lives reveal widom’s effects on maturity. One of the greatest gifts we were given upon Jesus’ arrival on planet earth was the Holy Spirit. Before Jesus’ birth, the Holy Spirit had visited only a few individuals. After Jesus’ ascension, the Holy Spirit arrived and now dwells within His followers; access to God’s wisdom takes up residence in the soul of a believer. What an incredible advantage. Jesus brought heaven to earth. The presence of the Holy Spirit brought eternity and God, the Source of all wisdom, directly into every moment of our journey. Whereas Jesus was limited to one place at a time, after He was resurrected and the Spirit came, God’s presence was everywhere His children are. Jesus’ birth, life, death, and resurrection brought the source of all truth and wisdom directly into the heart of all believers. Today, during the season of gift giving and receiving, celebrate the magnitude of the gift of God’s wisdom. #BeTheEdge

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” James 1:5 NIV
