The truth is, we can grow in God’s wisdom yet end up forsaking it in favor of our own ambitions. We may reach a point where we think we’ve maturity and no longer need to grow.
Let’s resist that temptation. Instead, let us hold fast to the things God has already given us, and in turn, allow the Lord’s wisdom to keep us. It will not only guard our paths, but also lead us in the way we should go.
“Do not forsake her, and she will keep you; love her, and she will guard you.” (Proverbs 4:6)
You and I may not be known as the smartest people in the room, but we can be known for having wisdom. At the end of the day, all the intelligence in the world doesn’t come close to the richness found in the wisdom of God. Let’s continue to seek it, cherish it, and grow in it.
