TEXT: PROVERBS 2:1-5
MEMORY VERSE: “So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding” (PROVERBS 2:2).
True wisdom originates from God and He gives liberally to as many as ask in faith. The wisdom of the world is sensual and self-serving. According to D. Marlyin Lloyd-Jones, "Surely the essence of wisdom is that before we begin to act at all, or attempt to please God, we should discover what it is that God has to say about the matter."
The wisdom of the world tends to deceit, falsehood, lies and selfishness. It is actually craftiness. However, God gives divine, creative wisdom that will both glorify Him and profit humanity at large.
This wisdom that comes from God is winsome, peaceful and kind. Youths who possess this godly wisdom are successful in their spiritual, academic and career endeavours. They stand tall among their peers, and like the biblical Daniel, they are reference points of excellence and pace-setters in their chosen fields. With divine wisdom, you can take right decisions, give good counsels and overcome temptations. You can access this wisdom by inviting Jesus into your life as your Saviour.
QUOTE: You can access this wisdom.
CHALLENGE: Be wise, invite Jesus into your life now!
PRAYER: Lord, make me a reflection of your glory and wisdom.
