SCRIPTURE: Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Proverbs 4:7
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Wisdom makes a person a principal and principality on the earth.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that wisdom is the principal thing. This means, wisdom makes a person a principal and principality on the earth. The principal thing (wisdom) is the reason behind the making of principal people like Moses, Solomon, David, Paul the apostle, etc. Therefore, in order to become everything God wants you to be, wisdom is critical.
Now, it is important to understand the manifestations of wisdom in order to apply our lives to it. Wisdom is not common sense; there is a dimension of wisdom with supernatural results.
Now, let me give you practical manifestations of wisdom:
1. Wisdom is manifested in profitable and positive actions
A man is not just wise because of what he knows; a man is wise because of what he does. It is in the action of men that wisdom is confirmed. Wisdom is not just a matter of mentality, it is a matter of profitable activity (Ecclesiastes 10:10). Actions that bring profit are wise actions. The absence of wisdom is proved by repeatedly embarking on actions that bring losses.
2. Wisdom is manifested by having a sense of value for the valuables of life
People of wisdom value that which has value; they value life and time. A person lacks wisdom when he does not value what has value in life; he does not value God, education, family, children, information, etc. How much value you allocate to the things that have value determines how much wisdom you are operating in (Job 28:18).
3. Wisdom is manifested in the daily choices of people
The choice you make daily shows how wise you are. Wisdom is exemplified by the choices of our life.
Remember this: Wisdom makes a person a principal and principality on earth.
1. Decide to embark on profitable action.
2. Place a high sense of value on the things that matter in life. Value the valuables of life.
3. Make profitable and productive choices daily.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace to embark on profitable actions. I receive Your help to make productive choices and value what other people value, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
