Proverbs 8:4-5 ” To you, O men, I call out; I raise my voice to all mankind. You who are simple, gain prudence; you who are foolish, gain understanding.”

These verses are Wisdom’s call to all of humanity…with the basic purpose of wisdom described in Proverbs 1:4-5, “For giving prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young – let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance.”  But why do we need wisdom?  Simple, because our hearts can be easily deceived, and a deluded heart will certainly mislead us.(Isaiah 44:20)  So how do we start to obtain wisdom?  Easy, Proverbs 1:7 tells us that, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge…”  And James 1:5 goes on to add, “If any of you lack wisdom ask, for the Lord gives wisdom and from His mouth comes knowledge and understanding.”   Wisdom is calling today, and if you’re like me, you could definitely use an extra measure of insight, discernment, and common sense in order to navigate through the mountains of information we’re being bombarded with right now.
