This #softteachings post is also a tribute to evangelist Billy Graham
If you have noticed in since the beginning of this series I have have started that these things that I discussed are done by fools out might seem redundant for me to talk about fools or foolishness but we need to know and understand that foolishness is vast and it has many indicators.
The basic definition of foolishness is suspense of mental reason which means that your mind can’t discern and use basic knowledge for the betterment of your life.
One of the signs of foolishness is refusal to mature because fools behave like children who don’t listen but only what to have fun, it takes maturity for one to be instructions. Wisdom crieth without;she uttereth her voice in the streets: She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates:in the city she uttereth her words, saying,How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity?and the scorners delight in their scorning,and fools hate knowledge?(Proverbs 1:20-22)
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge:but fools despise wisdom and instruction.(Proverbs 1:7)
If there’s one thing you should on lack in this world it’s wisdom, Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom:and with all thy getting get understanding.(Proverbs 4:7), because because everything that stands in this world stands is standing by wisdom, I wisdom dwell with prudence,and find out knowledge of witty inventions.The fear of the Lord is to hate evil:pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way,and the froward mouth, do I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom:I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign,and princes decree justice. By me princes rule,and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me;and those that seek me early shall find me.Riches and honour are with me;yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold,yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness,in the midst of the paths of judgment: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance;and I will fill their treasures.(Proverbs 8:12-21). (I advice you to read to the end of the chapter). Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.(Proverbs 24:3-4).
If you want to live your life to its highest potential you have to have wisdom hence it’s important to study, research and observe in order to obtain more wisdom and knowledge. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.(2 Timothy 2:15), This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great unto me: (ecclesiastes 9:13).
The greatest step you can take in being wise is to receive Christ Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour because the beginning of wisdom is to fear the Lord “proverbs 1:7”. Make it a point to receive him in your life and your days of foolishness will be over.
I recommend that you read or reread my teaching on wisdom
