Proverbs 4:7 (NLT)
7 Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! And whatever else you do, develop good judgment.

King Solomon who asked God for wisdom said obtaining wisdom was the wisest thing one could do. And from wisdom one should develop good judgment. In Ecclesiastes 12:13 Solomon said, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this [is] the whole [duty] of man.” In order to keep God’s commandments one has to first know them and second they must understand them.

People today confuse information with wisdom. There are great computers holding vast amounts of information. Search engines like Google can scour the internet and provide references to just about anything. You may have even heard someone say, “INFORMATION IS POWER”. But information in the hands of the unwise can go wasted. The wrong information can lead people astray. There is a requirement to discern good information from bad information and understand the difference. One cannot do that without wisdom. King Solomon had two women appear before him, each claiming a child to be their own. King Solomon had all the information about the child and two women, but it was his wisdom that was able to discern the truth from the falsehoods. It is like those who have information on Jesus. You can pass out a Gospel track that lists facts from the Bible. It puts information into a person’s hand. They hold there answers to questions they may have been seeking, but unless they allow wisdom to work in their lives to truly understand what Jesus has done for them all they hold is paper with information. Unless a person seeks for the deeper meanings in God’s word, they hold information but not the understanding of it. Pray God would fill you with wisdom to understand as you hear what He has to say.
