What is Wisdom?

11 06 2013

hthree_legged_tableLast time we prepared the soil of our soul for our new series on wisdom, truth and knowledge and so we begin looking at the first leg of kingdom’s table, wisdom.

Ecclesiastes tells us:

“Wisdom, like an inheritance, is a good thing

and benefits those who see the sun.”

Ecc 7:11

Webster’s dictionary defines wisdom “as the ability to discern the inner qualities”. Wisdom looks beyond the surface of things into the root.

King Solomon, a man who could have asked God for anything, requested wisdom, thus he was and is known as the wisest of men!

Solomon reflecting on kingdom wisdom in Proverbs 3:14-18; wisdom is worth more than silver, making you richer than gold, more valuable than precious jewels, a life-giving tree, the source of happiness.

What I find interesting in these words of Solomon is as we flow in kingdom wisdom (God’s discernment) we connect to the life-giving source of happiness. Kingdom wisdom is a complete and balanced package. This is in stark contrast to the wisdom of man which is often portrayed as a lofty burden weighing us down. I am reminded of another man who clearly functioned with Kingdom Wisdom, Christ who in Matthew 11:30 reminds us “my yoke is easy and my burden in light”, because God himself helps us to carry our burdens as we discern the deep things and he gives us rest!

As we go about our day seeking wisdom, today we ask you Father, the creator of all wisdom,  for this first leg of your kingdom table life-giving wisdom which opens the door to establishes your kingdom here on earth.

Blessings and Complete Joy,

Millie
