It's Not What You Know

God tells us to actively seek out wisdom and that if we do, we will find it in Him. That is a promise that brings hope for us.

We can work much more easily to be knowledgeable (says the man with hundreds of books in his office), but to gain wisdom requires the power of the Holy Spirit. It is the difference in knowing all of the reasons that something is right or wrong and having the discernment & discipline to choose the right thing-even if it is difficult.

Knowledge puffs up-it increases our ego and we use it as a weapon against others. It is wisdom that is godly, character shifting, and world-changing. True wisdom is a gift from God that He is ready for us to open if we would but eagerly search for it.
