Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise, and apply your heart to my knowledge; 18 for it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you; let them all be fixed upon your lips . . . (Pro 22:17-18)
Hear instruction and be wise, and do not disdain it. 34 Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. (Pro 8:33-34)
My son, pay attention to my wisdom; lend your ear to my understanding, 2 that you may preserve discretion, and your lips may keep knowledge. (Pro 5:1-2)
As we read these passages from the Bible shown above, we can clearly see one theme shining through which is that we need to pay attention to and obey the Wisdom of God.
The Bible is filled with the wisdom of God from the beginning to the end. As we fill our hearts and minds with God’s Word, we will learn about God’s nature and goodness as well as about His eternal wisdom.
As we choose to obey God’s will and to yield to His wisdom, we will experience God’s blessings and prosperity. As we continue to yield to His Word throughout the course of our life, we will acquire a merciful and loving heart toward others, and a deep desire to bless other people. This is truly the outworking of God’s life and Spirit within us.
Jesus Christ is the wisdom of God (1 Cor 1:24, 30), and in Him, this wisdom is available to us. Glory to God!
