Are You Seeking Wisdom?

"I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity. My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yield surpasses choice silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice, bestowing wealth on those who love me and making their treasuries full." - Proverbs 8:17-21

The above passage is wisdom crying out to us. Did you know that "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline." (Proverbs 1:7)? This is why you can see men and women who are successful by the world's standard fall into the temptation of drugs, illicit sex, and a host of other destructive behaviors.

Talent and intelligence are no substitute for God. Do a Google search on suicide rates, and you will see that Physicians have a higher suicide rate than the general population. Although it's hard to validate the statistics, Psychiatrists in America are believed to be the highest of all. What good is it to have money but no happiness?
"The wages of the righteous bring them life, but the income of the wicked brings them punishment." - Proverbs 10:17
It's a simple formula, No God = No Wisdom.

There are some who will read this post and receive it at once, and there are others who will write a flaming comment. This, too, is in the Bible. "Whoever corrects a mocker invites insult; whoever rebukes a wicked man incurs abuse." - Proverbs 9:7

If you want to add to your wisdom, read a chapter from Proverbs every day. To get even more out of it, read it out loud. "Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ." - Romans 10:17

I encourage you, if you hear the Word, share the Word.
