Whose Wisdom Are You Leaning On?
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
We learned about one of the benefits of wisdom last week. This week we will work on letting God be our guide in our search for wisdom. This scripture tells us exactly from where our wisdom needs to originate: God. If we are devoted to God and denying evil influences in our lives, we open ourselves to grow in wisdom.
We are also told to not trust in our own carnal wisdom. Just a couple scriptures earlier, we are told to trust in God with all of our heart (Proverbs 3:5). In Proverbs 3:6, we are told to acknowledge God in all our ways. When we put these three verses together, we see the importance of trusting in the Lord for all our decisions, even the daily ones we consider as routine. Try this activity to get our focus on God so we can grow greater in wisdom:
