I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Devotion The Key to Wisdom

The fear of the Lord is where wisdom begins, and knowing holiness demonstrates understanding. Proverbs 9:10 ISV

Wisdom is centered not in human law or ancient writings, though some wisdom can be found here. Experience also helps us on the journey to wisdom. While all these offer a certain knowledge, the deepest wisdom keys in on one central action—choice.

We choose whom we listen to and who and what we follow. If wisdom begins with God, then true wisdom comes from getting to know this God who created the world and us—you and me. If we truly wish to become wise, we need to read God’s Word, meditate on His Word and develop a relationship with God’s Son—Jesus Christ. It is in following Him to righteousness, holiness, truth that we truly gain wisdom.

What better time to begin to follow Jesus than at Easter that celebrates the One who rose from the grave to offer us new life and hope in Him. That is the wisest choice of all.
