April Wisdom Day

I don’t know anyone who wants to be a “fool.” I know lots of folks who want to be wise. The “go-to” book for Wisdom is the Book of Proverbs in the Bible. It begins with these words: These are the proverbs of Solomon, David’s son, king of Israel. Their purpose is to teach people wisdom and discipline, to help them understand the insights of the wise…These proverbs will give insight to the simple, knowledge and discernment to the young.

Wisdom for life is free for the asking and for the reading. It is available to every person. Only God knows the best choice to make in considering a mate, job offers, surgery options, child rearing, etc. James tells us that if we lack wisdom (and we all do), all we have to do is ask and He will tell us what to do. This requires intentionality and discipline. It requires setting aside time regularly to read the book of wisdom, absorbing the principles and putting them into action. It requires talking to God and confessing that we need His insight on our issues. He promises to answer when we ask in faith.

A good habit is to read one chapter of day in the Book of Proverbs since there are 31 chapters.  It’s the best way to spend 5 minutes.

Why opt to be a fool when we can all be wise!
