What exactly is wisdom? Wisdom is the ability to discern God’s way and live it.
Jesus tells the story of the wise man and the foolish man in Matthew 7 and says that everyone who hears his words and puts them into practice is wise. And those who don’t are foolish.
We ask God through prayer, through reading His word, through seeking Godly counsel. Pursuing wisdom is the opposite of pursuing self-sufficiency. Wisdom grows as we recognize that we don’t have all the answers, but God does.
God wants us to develop wisdom so that we are like the wise man who builds his house on the rock of knowing and practicing God’s truth. He alone knows what is best for us and He gives wisdom generously to all who pursue it.
