Well How About That?-D.Wadsworth

How much better to get wisdom than gold! To get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver. (Prov. 16:16)

Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety. (Prov. 11:14)

Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed. (Prov. 15:22)

Plans are established by counsel; by wise guidance wage war. (Prov. 20:18)

All three of these sources of wisdom call us to humble submission. We must put our lives under the authority of the Bible, the Holy Spirit, and wise people. The alternative is pride, foolishness, and disgrace. This means that, as leaders, we who are in authority must also be under authority (Prov. 11:2; 28:26).

How is your pursuit of wisdom going?

The health of our churches and the future of His kingdom depend upon saints being equipped and entrusted to do Christ’s work.
