By John Chopores
will take care, of those who love
it! Cf. Pr 4:5† Get
wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my
mouth. Pr 4:6† Forsake
her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.
Wisdom can make your name great! Cf.† De 4:5† Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.
De 4:6† Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.
2Ti † That the man of God
may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good
2. By prayer. Cf. 1Ki 3:9† Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?
1Ki † And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing.
1Ki 3:11† And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;
1Ki 3:12† Behold, I
have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an
understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither
after thee shall any arise like unto thee.
3. We must be willing to use Wisdom, for Godís works! Cf. 2Ti † That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. De 4:5† Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.
