I don’t consider myself to be a particularly wise person, but I have great wisdom.
If that statement seems self-contradictory, it’s really not. You see, I know that I’m not innately wise. But I have access to a treasure trove of wisdom that is far beyond the “common sense” with which most people try to cope with life.
Proverbs 2:6 (NKJV) For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
The only level of wisdom I will claim for myself is that I am wise enough to know that without the wisdom that comes only from God, I’m not wise at all!
In fact, to neglect the wisdom that springs from the mouth of God through Scripture, and to try to find my own way through life based on my own good common sense, is to be not wise but extremely foolish.
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.
So, whatever issues I may face in life, the wise thing to do is to open the pages of God’s word, find out what He has to say about the subject, and then act on it. That’s real wisdom!
