A Heart for Wisdom.
Israel's second king, King Solomon remains synonymous with wisdom. He was wiser than any other man. Solomon spoke 3000 proverbs, he wrote 1005 songs and also described God's creation. (See 1 Kings 4:29-34). His heart did not tarry in the wilderness of fools, so let our hearts too find sage shelter.
Enjoy these eight thoughts:
- True wisdom cannot be measured, it is as endless as its author.
- Blessed is the man who can divide right and wrong for evil can secure no foothold.
- True wisdom is not found in neglect. It is applied in all times, upon all thoughts, and at all turns.
- Woe to men at ease for they have little cause to seek God's face.
- Better to be in strife and trouble than to miss the Lord's smile.
- Woe to those who refuse to reckon the future, their fall awaits.
- Better a little with joyful thanks than abundance with unbroken tears.
- Blessed are those who are governed by the Lord's tomorrow for they hold a heart of wisdom.
Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. (Psalm 90:12)
