Spiritual Food for Thought for the Weekend
“In Search of Wisdom” (1)
“If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you.”
While I like all the books of the Bible, I particularly like the book of Proverbs. Whenever I read it, my prayer is that my relationship with Christ will be strengthened as I seek biblical wisdom. Proverbs 8:11 states, “For wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.”
So, how can we attain wisdom? Wisdom can sometimes come through a rebuke. Of course, it takes humility to accept a rebuke. It is hard to take, and it gets harder as you get older. But if we heed what is being said to us, it will lead us to great wisdom. Therefore, be wise and learn from even a rebuke. I pray, as we get older, we will still be humble and teachable. I believe this is the mark of spiritual maturity.
Prayer: Lord, give me a humble heart to gain wisdom this day. In Jesus’ name, amen.
