Wisdom from Him

Where do you turn first when you need wisdom? Understanding? What about discretion and knowledge? I have a tendency to ask my friends or parents when I need help. However, when problems arise in life, we should turn first to the Bible.

Proverbs 1:1-7

The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel: for attaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insight; for acquiring a disciplined and prudent life, doing what is right and just and fair; for giving prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young-let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance-for understanding proverbs and parables, the sayings and riddles of the wise. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.

Christian friends and authorities are often one of God's greatest tools to speak to us, but the best advice comes from the Bible. Check who is influencing you. When storms arise, do they point you back to God, or their own wisdom?

2 Timothy 3:16-17

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
