WISDOM

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding." (Proverbs 9:10 NIVUK)  My mother used to say of some people she knew that they were super-intelligent, but lacked common sense. Clearly, even in a worldly sense, there is a marked difference between those who accumulate encyclopaedic knowledge about a wide range of subjects, and those who demonstrate wisdom. Our society values education, and so it should. But, let me suggest that to seek the LORD and endeavour every day to follow in His ways shows wisdom that goes beyond words.
