Benjamin Franklin is credited with saying, "Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise." Wisdom is often associated with knowing how to make the right choices, how to make the most out of a situation, or how to navigate the challenges of life. Many times, we think of wisdom as coming with age and maturity. It may be true that we become wiser over time, but time is not the only factor leading to wisdom!
We may find wisdom in the experiences of our lives, but we can also find wisdom in God. It is through His Truth that we can know right from wrong. By learning about God and from God, we can gain wisdom. Once we have wisdom, we then need to be careful with how we live. We need to apply the wisdom that God provides through our experiences and through our relationship with Him. We need to make the most out of our opportunities and avoid the evil that days on earth may hold. We need to be wise and do the wise things as guided by God!
Be wise and use the wisdom that God has granted you!
Thank You for my experiences and the wisdom that You have given me. Help me to use this wisdom as I strive to live a better life for You each day. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
