More Wisdom

For the LORD gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk in integrity,
Guarding the paths of justice,
And He preserves the way of His godly ones.
Then you will discern righteousness and justice
And equity and every good course.
For wisdom will enter your heart
And knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;

The above verses are Proverbs 2:6 - 10. I like these verses. I like the fact that God will give us wisdom. He stores it for us and preserves it for us. If you are upright and godly you will be able to use your wisdom. It will be in your heart and you will be satisfied with it.

I like that. I hope that we all strive for wisdom to enter our hearts. The hard part is living up to the standards. So today I pray we all strive for the standards of godliness. God wants to give us His wisdom. We just have to want it and ask for it. Then we have to use it to the best of our abilities.

We have to be able to understand that with it comes the ability to discern righteousness and justice. I looked up the word discern. It means to distinguish mentally; recognize as distinct or different. So to recognize that righteousness and justice are different from the world will be a gift of wisdom. That is cool. To know that what the world thinks is justice and what God's justice is helps us to figure out what we need to do.

I hope that if you want more knowledge, start reading your Bible. Proverbs is one of my favorite books. You can read a chapter a day in a month and start all over again.
