“Wisdom strengthens the wise more than ten rulers of the city.” (Ecclesiastes 7:19 NKJV)
I don’t know about you, but I want to be made stronger than ten mighty, powerful men in my city. I love to hear the powerful, mighty, wise, successful men speak. We can learn much from them. However, the greatest men I know cannot teach me more than the great God I know. He imparts the greatest wisdom.
If you know, then you know. If you do not know, then you do not know. To be wise is to know. To be wise is to be skilled in any art. To be wise is to pursue your own knowledge and truth.
Wisdom is to exercise of what you know.
Wisdom is the right use of knowledge.
Wisdom is the practice of sound judgment either in avoiding evils or attempting good.
Wisdom is discerning, judging correctly, or discriminating between what is true and what is false; between what is right and wrong, what is proper and what is improper.
Wisdom is readiness of mind to act or accomplish a purpose that comes from experience or practice, united with activity or quick motion.
I enCOURAGE you with the words of Solomon. “Wisdom [is] the principal thing; [Therefore] get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.” (Proverbs 4:7 NKJV). Think about this…first get wisdom and then wisdom will give you strength more than ten mighty, powerful, rulers of a city. Think for yourself. Do not let others think for you. Study to become the best you that you can be. Exercise wisdom. If we know to exercise our bodies, and don’t do it, we are not being wise nor using wisdom. If we know to read our Bible, and don’t do it, we are not being wise. Wisdom is exercising what we know.
