What is Wisdom In The Bible?

wisdom in the bible

By: David Hopkins

Sun, May 06, 2012

No one hates wisdom or chooses foolishness on purpose.

But lack of proper guidance naturally produces bad habits.

And bad habits are pleasurable and easy to get addicted to.

Plus, as time goes on with practice they become harder to break free from.

Proverbs 18:1 Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.

Life is a very serious matter that some people tend to take a little bit too lightly.

But there are many things that can cause a lot of pain and suffering that are real and all around us.

Now think about all the pain you've caused with the mistakes you've made in your life.

Have you ever looked back and imagined what life would be like without those painful mistakes.

Proverbs 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

The Word Of God Is Wisdom And The Bible Is The Word Of God

The Bible is the inspired word of God.

And when you meditate on His word you receive the wisdom and knowledge that you need to live a better and more fulfilling life regardless of the type of guidance you had while growing up.

Proverbs 2:6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

And the problem is this.

We usually receive more of the foolish word from the world's bad advice which contradicts the wisdom of the word of God which is sound advice.

Proverbs 19:27 Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.

Understanding The Word Of God Is The Most Important Thing You Can Do In Life

Yes that is correct.

The more word of God you understand, the more obedient you'll be, the better off you'll become.

Because the power of faith depends on how much of the word of God you understand.

The "WHY" in why you shouldn't sleep around or why you should forgive someone who did you wrong.

The "WHY" in why you should go to church or "WHY" you should read the Bible everyday just to name a few examples.

This is accomplished quicker by starving the desires of the world and indulging deeply into the word of God.

Nevertheless the worldly behaviour can still be defeated over time with more intake of the word of God and less intake of the world's system.

It'll just take a lot longer.

Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

Also contrary to the word of God the world wants you to believe that pursuing money and material things, and people who pursue these things is the most important thing.

But both Solomon and Jesus said that it's better to seek the wisdom of God than it is to pursue riches and other material things.

Ecclesiastes 7:12 For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Failure To Understand The Word Of God Is A Great Disservice Against Your Own Life

That is to say, you're not doing yourself any favors by ignoring the word of God.

Besides that, it could put your kids at a great disadvantage in life as well.

It most certainly will lead to more unnecessary and foolish mistakes.

And could possibly even lead to an early death.

Proverbs 8:36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
