Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom

Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom.

Wisdom is the principal thing;
Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding.
Exalt her, and she will promote you;
She will bring you honor, when you embrace her.
She will place on your head an ornament of grace;
A crown of glory she will deliver to you.

Proverbs 4:7-9

Wisdom has always been highly valued! Even the term philosophy comes from two root words that mean love of wisdom! Today’s word of wisdom highlights the importance of wisdom and the benefits of wisdom. We must consistently desire and take action towards increasing in the ability to make optimal decisions (wisdom).

When you seek out and honor wise people by listening to them, by acting on their wise ideas you honor wisdom. When we position ourselves to learn and seek to understand things around us, what we are doing is seeking understanding. The more one is willing to learn the more you realize that there is a lot to learn and the wiser one seems to become.

About 16 months ago I started to learn so much more about blogging and making money online by spending 1-2 hours daily reading and trying to practice what I was learning. I have since come to understand that there is so much to learn about making money online it feels like a world of it’s own. I can only imagine all the other “worlds” out there that one can learn from.

I totally agree with the above proverb that if you have wisdom you will also have honor, respect, wealth and grace (a lovable disposition). The question is how does one get wisdom? Share your thoughts!

Take Action – Pray for Wisdom, Desire to be wise in your decision making, make mental note or preferably write down one or two things that you learn from different situations that happen today! If you have a journal or a blog to write them down, take a minute or 2 to do so.

Share your thoughts – How does one get wisdom? What are your experiences? Who around you would you say is wise and why?
