Today's Word: Proverbs 11:2

Before I became a Christian, I thought of "wisdom" as that kind of thinking only the old and experienced possess. When I was born again, the Holy Spirit led me to the learning that wisdom is essentially the enlightenment that comes from God, which leads people to do His will and obey His commands. Upon this realization, I considered wisdom an important part of my Christian life because this is how God tells me what to do in a particular situation, especially in times of trouble. Wisdom from God is not, however, given to the prideful, who think that their earthly wisdom makes them so great. They don't realize that human wisdom is foolishness before God (1 Corinthians 3:19). As Proverbs 11:2 says, God gives wisdom only to those who humble themselves before Him. The Lord bless you today.
