Wisdom, like an inheritance, is a good thing and benefits those who see the sun.
As children of the King, our inheritance in Christ holds vast riches. Certainly, the priceless gift of our salvation tops the list, but the wisdom that comes from following Jesus is just as precious. When we follow him, we lose sight of the many foolish pursuits we once chased after. On a day when fools seem to be celebrated as comical and silly, it’s good to remember the value of this invaluable resource.
As we seek God’s wisdom, we benefit like a sapling growing beneath the sunshine. Wisdom has a larger perspective and trusts God’s sovereignty beyond what you can see, hear, and touch. Wisdom provides insight and understanding, compassion and caring. Wisdom emerges from the refining process when you go through the fire. The shallow, superficial things you once worried about are no longer important. You recognize what matters. That’s wisdom.
Resist the folly of the world and trust in the wisdom of the Lord.
