The Path to Wisdom

James 3:13 (NLT) If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.

Can you think of someone you consider wise?  Pause and identify your wise person…

What is the source of their wisdom?  What kind of life do they live?

Many verses instruct us that the first step toward true wisdom is respecting and honoring the Lord.  Each verse adds a little extra.  To forsake evil is real understanding (Job 28:28).  All who obey His commands will grow in wisdom (Psalm 111:10).  Fools despise wisdom and discipline (Proverbs 1:7).  Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom (Proverbs 3:7).  Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment (Proverbs 9:10).  Humility precedes honor (Proverbs 15:33).

What path will you follow toward wisdom?
