Wisdom – the Checklist

Imagine how differently areas of our lives would have played out had we operated in the wisdom of God rather than our own understanding.

Good News, Proverbs 1:2 tells us that understanding and insight are available – that we can KNOW and comprehend wisdom. We can perceive wisdom and have insight.

Proverbs 1:2 (AMP)
That people may know skillful and godly Wisdom and instruction, discern and comprehend the words of understanding and insight.

Proverbs 1:2 (NKJ)
To know wisdom and instruction, 
To perceive the words of understanding.

One of our greatest spiritual desires and commitments to the Lord should be that we may know skillful and godly wisdom and have great spiritual understanding and insight – AND employ and apply it in all areas of our lives. We know that God wants us to be led by the Holy Spirit in every aspect of our lives every day.

Proverbs 1 also tells us that wisdom cries out to us…it isn’t elusive or hidden. It isn’t playing hard to get.

Sounds good, right? So, how do we get more wisdom?
