We should strive to possess wisdom!
Wisdom imparted should be wisdom gained! It is all based on a personal choice to accept or reject Godly wisdom.
For wisdom is protection just as money is protection, But the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the lives of its possessors.
Ecclesiastes 7:12 NASB
The more I take in wisdom and apply it into my personal life it becomes a protection for me.
But how so right?
I had wisdom shared with me about how I have been overly available to my job. I hadn’t set no boundary that when I was off work, I was off work!
I was always answering calls and messages and wasn’t getting paid to do such things. What happened as a result was me becoming stressed, burned out, overwhelmed, and full the more of anxiety.
Now setting boundaries and possessing the wisdom that has been imparted to me it has become a protection for my sanity. He gave us a spirit of a sound mind(self-control) I can control myself in how available I am (portion of 2 Tim 1:7).
The only way to preserve my life is to take in and adhear wisdom to my life as much as possible for it has the power to protect. Wisdom should be our sister as our closest confidant (Proverbs 7:4).
Wisdom cried out for me in this situation and countless others. I had to make a choice to take hold of wisdom or let it slip from my grip. I choose now after doing too much in my strength to allow wisdom to aide in my life. Won’t you?
