Wisdom is more valuable than precious jewels; nothing you could want can compare with it. Wisdom offers you long life, wealth and honor. [It] can make your life pleasant and lead you safely through it. Those who become wise are happy. Proverbs 3:15-18 (GN)
Wisdom was given to us in order to help us live our lives in the best way. Following the wisdom of the Bible can bring many benefits to us. Wisdom can help us live a longer life by helping us to live with less stress. It can help us create and maintain wealth by following Biblical principles of money management. Wisdom can bring us honor, pleasure, happiness, and help us keep strife at bay. It can also bring security by giving us the knowledge to live life in a way that is appropriately cautious and thoughtful. Overall, we can learn a lot and bring improvements to many areas of our lives and we will explore these ideas more deeply over the coming weeks.
Consider what you would most like to gain from the different areas that wisdom can affect by following Biblical teachings on it (use the link here to follow along with the weekly messages in this message series). Pray for guidance as you seek answers and information on improving an area of your life.
