Have you had your Joy Juice today? Life is filled with choices! Choose joy; choose wisdom.
Proverbs 4:5-7 challenges us to make wise choices. Solomon’s words should be hidden in the depths of our hearts so that we will be ready to apply them in every aspect of our daily lives. Listen to this passage: “Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom.”
Solomon clearly says….CHOOSE WISELY! Does wisdom simply drop into our lives? Does it easily grow in our hearts? Is it something we can pick up at the grocery store or order online? Do we go to bed one night and wake up the next morning “wise”? Don’t we wish it was that easy? Godly wisdom takes resolve and perseverance!
As my Bible footnote explains:
“It takes a determination not to abandon the search once you begin, no matter how difficult the road may become. This is not a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ step, but a daily process of choosing between two paths—the wicked and the righteous. Nothing else is more important or more valuable.”
Wisdom is supreme! Choose Godly wisdom and find joy in the Lord!
