Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.
God wants us to go after wisdom. Wisdom is the “principal thing”, He tells us. We are not to go after riches. But when we have wisdom, all the things we seek will follow after us, including honor and length of days. So never make riches your goal!
My friend, if you lack wisdom, simply ask God for it. He will give it to you “liberally and without reproach” (James 1:5). The truth is that He has already given you wisdom when He gave you Jesus, “who became for us wisdom from God” (1 Cor. 1:30).
So if you are facing a challenge at work and you don’t know how to resolve it, say, “Jesus, You are my wisdom. I thank You that You will provide me with the best solution.” If you have a wayward child, say, “Jesus, thank You for wisdom in loving and raising this child well.”
Beloved, you are most blessed to have Jesus, in whom resides all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge!
