“Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding. For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver, and her gain than fine gold.” ~Prov. 3:13-14
Men all long to be wise. It is what has made some of the greatest leaders in history. Robert E. Lee, Theodore Roosevelt, and many others. But these men knew the true source of wisdom: God. Men today have forgotten that. Listen to this verse from Job,
“But where can wisdom be found, and where is the place of understanding? Man does not know its value, nor is it found in the land of the living.” ~Job 28:13
We need to lay all of our trust in God to be wise. We can not depend on our own wisdom, but must find it through God. This is what makes a man truly great; not fame, riches or power, but wisdom from God.
