James 1:5 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” (KJV)
Common sense is becoming less and less common. Unwise decisions seem to be the trademark of this society. This trend is directly related to the removal of God from everything public. Sound judgment and righteous actions adorn the lives of those who have submitted to God’s authority. Those who do not acknowledge His authority or seek His wisdom will corrupt and defile everything they touch.
Psalm 53:1 “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.” (KJV)
We as individuals, families, communities, states and nations are being called to seek God and His wisdom. It is found in the Bible. God’s desire for everyone is that we know Him, that we have a personal relationship with Him through Jesus Christ, and that we glorify Him with successful and disciplined lives.
The Bible has been labeled, “Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.” For that reason, over the next several weeks we will be exploring those instructions from the book of Proverbs.
