Today I want to talk to you about wisdom and gaining it. There is a difference between being smart and having wisdom. Wisdom comes from the heart. Wisdom comes from having experience in something. The older folks have so much wisdom to share with the younger generation. I wish they would take advantage of their knowledge because they have gone before them and they have a lot to share.
I use to love sitting with my grandmother and listening to all of her stories. She always gave wonderful advice. Try going to the nursing homes for a visit and just sit with some of those folks and listen to what they have to say. Or go and visit with your mom and dad or grandparents and ask them to tell you some of their life experiences. You will be surprised what you will learn from them. If we only would take the time to gain wisdom we would be so much happier.
You also find that kind of wisdom in the Holy Scriptures. Read God's word every day to make your life a richer experience. Our scripture for today is found in Proverbs 3:13,14. It reads
"Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding; for her proceeds are better than the profits of silver and her gain than fine gold.
Wisdom is the result of experience and application of the truth as it is found in His word. It comes from the heart. Wisdom is worth more than prosperity. Have a wonderful day.
