Wisdom


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

            In the book of Proverbs, King Solomon expressly informs us of the benefits of wisdom.  In all thy getting get wisdom and understanding for out of them flows the issues of life.

            Our lifestyle should daily reflect the will of God.  We should position ourselves to live according to the Word of God.  There are two kinds of wisdom: godly and carnal or worldly wisdom.  The wisdom of this world is guided by our knowledge and intellect to achieve success.  We work two and three jobs to meet our personal needs and desires.  Godly wisdom comes from God, our Heavenly Father.  We are instructed to seek godly wisdom.  Proverbs 1:20-23 states wisdom cries out from the city to make herself known to us.  Knowledge is good but knowledge alone will not get you where you need to be in Christ Jesus.  Godly wisdom is the divine care and interest of our Creator whom gives us the power to manifest His will in this earth.  Godly wisdom instructs us to let Love abide and be a helper to our brothers and sisters.  We are instructed to do to others as we would have them do to us. 
              Hear the conclusion of the matter, let Love dwell in your heart so as to develop Godly wisdom.  The love of God and the wisdom of God will create and establish an environment of success in your life.

Gratitude and Health

Gratitude or being thankful is an expression or acknowledgment in words or action of benefits received from another person.  As a Christian, we are instructed to praise and give thanks in all things.  An attitude of gratitude is one of the primary gateways to God's presence.

I Thessalonians 5:16     Rejoice evermore

                            v17    Pray without ceasing

                            v18    In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus
                                                concerning you.
