(Proverbs 14:33 KJV) Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding: but that which is in the midst of fools is made known.
“Wisdom” (2451) “rests” (5117), stops or relaxes, in our “heart” (3820). Or at least it wants to. God has given us so many sources of wisdom yet it seems to be in short supply. We have the written word. Few read it. We have the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Few seek it. We have the voices from the past. They are often brushed off as “dead white guys.” We have some parents and grandparents but the mantra of the generation running the country now was “Don’t trust anyone over thirty.”
For wisdom to become a part of our lives we need to lay a groundwork of understanding. We need to want it. We need to pursue it.
So? How does your day look? You will set aside time for meals, exercise, TV and who knows what else. How about setting aside some time for wisdom? If it is too late today, then pencil some time in tomorrow. It doesn’t just happen.
