The Beginning of Wisdom

Hosted by
Wisdom from Above
Fearing God is the beginning of wisdom.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm. Proverbs 1:1, 33

Solomon wrote down the benefits of wisdom for all people for all times. It all begins with a reverence for the source of wisdom, namely God. He says that there are many who are fools who will not appreciate what God wants to share with them. But, a promise exists of safety, ease, and life without fear of being harmed for those who choose His ways.

Wisdom is a continual request from my lips to God’s ear. In all the many situations that I find myself in, I desire to know His way forward. I don’t have all the answers.

God, thank you for the promise that if any many lacks wisdom, we can ask, and you graciously supply it. Today, please prompt me and lead me through this day in all of its many decisions. I am grateful and I love You.
