Today’s Word

Wisdom

A disposition to find the truth.

Judgment as to what actions to pursue and deliver the correct outcome.

Requires control of our emotional reactions so that reason prevails.

 

Today’s Verse

Proverbs 19

11 A person’s wisdom makes him slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense

 

As we grow in the knowledge of the Word of God, we acquire spiritual wisdom. It guides us in making good decisions. It helps us with reason and control of our emotional reactions. It allows us to seek the truth in all we see and do.

Wisdom as a Guide

The study of the Bible helps us gain knowledge and understanding of God’s standards for our daily living. It is a guide to Christians as to what is right or wrong, and as to what is expected to be our reaction to all that we encounter. It is a guide to help us control our emotions so we do not exercise outbursts of anger or wrong judgment.

Wisdom as Reason

As we grow in knowledge, we learn to use reason. We learn to make decisions with our spiritual heart, which is guided by God’s word. By using our spiritual knowledge, we learn to reason with our emotions. We allow the Holy Spirit to keeps us calm, think, evaluate, and contain our anger. We use reason as to not offend others, yet glorify God.

Wisdom as Truth

Our pursuit for the truth is led by our Christian thirst for knowledge. We seek justice, truth, compassion, love, and acceptance. Our quest for the truth drives us to use reasoning and knowledge, in order to discern right from wrong, good from bad, holy from unholy, and godly from ungodly. We set all judgment aside until we have examined all the facts and found the truth.

  1. I like how you said we learn to reason with our emotions, not by denying our emotions. Wisdom involves the acknowledgement of emotions and the proper godly response to them.

  2. May we all possess wisdom through the application of God’s Word to our lives. Thanks for a great reminder of the importance of wisdom for all of us!
