(Proverbs 4:5 KJV) Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
How many of us really want be guided by “wisdom” (2451)? That may seem a silly question but think about all the things we do on a daily basis that are counterproductive. Think of purchases made for things that only have the appeal of being seen on TV. Think of the books read and the ones ignored. Think of all the excuses we have for not spending time in prayer and reading the word.
I speak from experience. Hind sight and wishful thinking will not get the horse back in the barn.
So? Go for the gold standard. The quest starts with the next decision.
