Proverbs 4:7

The first thing [is] wisdom -- get wisdom, And with all thy getting get understanding. [YLT]

Jesus told the story of a certain rich man and his servant in Luke Chapter 16: 1-13. This rich man got report that his servant was mismanaging his resources. So he required that the servant give account of his goods. This servant, knowing he would be relieved of his job devised a strategy that ensured that his job was retained and his master greatly impressed. Jesus concluded that story by saying in Luke16:8 (KJV) 'And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light'.

As children of the light, life should be more interesting for us. Unfortunately this is not the case with so many believers. Many will even miss heaven out of foolishness. Another story was told by Jesus Christ in Matthew 25:1-13. Ten virgins took their lamps and waited for the bridegroom. Jesus called five of them wise and the others foolish. The Foolish Five did not take extra oil along for their lamps. When the bridegroom delayed, their lamps went out and they missed him. This is how many believers would miss the mark out of sheer foolishness.

Wisdom- divine wisdom is inherent in our redemption package. 1Co 1:30 (KJV) says '... Christ Jesus... is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption'. We shall learn how to walk in this wisdom daily in our next studies.

Go into today knowing God's desire for you is to live wisely always.

Prayer: My Father and my God, teach me how to maximize the divine wisdom available in Christ for me. Amen.
