ARE YOU WISE?

What is wisdom? Good sense, discernment, proper judgment, a wise decision,a deep understanding of people or things, accumulated learning and the list goes on. The Bible speaks a good deal about wisdom. We pray for our children to use wisdom in making decisions Proverbs 10:5 says "A wise youth makes hay while the sun shines, but what a shame to see a lad who sleeps away his hour of opportunity."  In the past 5 years I have been better able to understand this scripture since we now have a small farm. On this farm hay is one of our crops due to the cows needing it for food. It can not be grown or harvested when it is pouring buckets of rain or when there is never enough sun. So when there is a pretty day and it is ready to 'make hay' you go for it. On these days many farms up and down the highway we live on are doing the same thing, making hay.

Proverbs is full of verses on wisdom. It would take a book to write about them all. Proverbs 10:8 says "The wise man is glad to be instructed, but a self-sufficient fool falls flat on his face." Pretty good word picture and self explanatory. Proverbs 9 in the end of verse 13 says "For wisdom hates pride, arrogance, corruption, and deceit of every kind." So that says basically it is smart to not condone these things. Do a google search of wisdom and you will find much more in the book of Proverbs.

PRAYER: Father we want to be wise and not fools. Guide us. Help us keep our eyes open to the truth and protect us from deceptive spirits. In Jesus Name. Amen.
