The book of Proverbs provides wisdom for Christian living and this world would be a different place if everyone had God’s wisdom. Wisdom is seeing and responding to life’s situations as Jesus would. Several years ago we would frequently see WWJD or what would Jesus do? A Christian should be like Christ and according to Proverbs 1:2,3 should know and receive the instruction of wisdom. James 1:5 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” James shows the contrast of earthly wisdom and wisdom from above. James 3: 13-17 “Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.” Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. 2:2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding. In order for us to have the fruits of His wisdom at work in our lives we need to ask Him daily for his wisdom.
