Get Wisdom

Proverbs 3:13-14

“Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.”

The Point

This is the whole point: Wisdom is the highest thing to pursue.

Before you hunt me down for blasphemy or heresy, I must repeat something quoted earlier:

Anything but the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who is the true wisdom of God (1 Corinthians 1:24).

The best, most worthy, most desirable thing we could ever hope to attain in this life or the next is the Wisdom of God: Jesus Christ.

God has given us the opportunity to draw close and hear His voice. God has welcomed us as friends into His home. God has made a way for us to finally reach out and take His hand.

When we understand that God came to us in the person of Jesus Christ and that we can intimately walk with Him, how can we not be blessed, be happy?

Need I really say more?

Dear Lord, thank you for Your love and coming to save us. Thank You that You have made a way for us. Thank You for giving us Yourself and inviting us in. Give us more of You. Help us understand You more.

    You always post such wonderful and thought-provoking words. May we all have the connection with Jesus our Lord that you do. God bless. You are wise beyond your years.

      I sure do love you, brother “Barnabas”! You say such kind things. If I write anything of worth, it is all because of He who lives in me. And I assure you, I could be so much closer to Him!

        Your comment caused me to nearly cry…your kindness is felt as well. Blessings upon you every single moment. Oh, and as to the other comment I would only add that Jesus is of course the AUTHOR of wisdom, and more than its sum total, but He is actually both. The sum total and beyond. That would be how I view it. God bless!

    Jesus is the sum of all wisdom, isn’t He? No, that’s not right. All wisdom is the product of Him, whether obeyed, retold in truth, or perverted and twisted by fools. He is the Source, not the sum.

    • danklemitis

      Amen. I remember someone telling me once that his wisdom eventually led him to Christ. We had a great discussion from that that culminated in this: any wisdom we gain has come as a gift from the true Wisdom of God. God gives Himself to us to draw is in. We can barely manage to follow Him!

  • Proverbs 3:17 | Proverbial Thought
