Walk in Wisdom

Walk in Wisdom

The writer of Proverbs repeatedly emphasizes that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. It is his central thesis for writing. He extols the excellence of the wisdom that God offers, and reflects upon the benefits of seeking God’s wisdom. He warns of the folly of dismissing or ignoring God’s wisdom in our lives. To whole-heartedly embrace God’s wisdom brings life; we ignore it to our detriment. Walk in wisdom today and find life.

Those who trust in themselves are fools, but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe. —Proverbs 28:26

Prayer: Lord of wisdom, God of grace, we seek You and Your wisdom for life. We confess the futility of trusting in ourselves and our own wisdom, and we look to You to lead and direct us. Let Your truth, Your wisdom, flood our minds and shape our leadership perspective. Guard and guide us as we embrace Your wisdom and embody it through our lives and leadership. In Jesus’ name, amen.
