Not every piece of wisdom we get is from God!
There is one thing if not this that I have learned the hard way. So many want to try to impart wisdom to a person, but that wisdon was biblically unfounded. Rather it was from their own experiance and not pure truth from the Word of God.
But, how do you know what someone is sharing with you is bibically backed sound wisdom?
I have found that those that do have biblically backed wisdom often have scriptural support of what they are imparting to me. They not only share of their own personal experiance in using the Word of Gods true and pure wisdom to help them navigate a situation. But encourage in loving, supportive, compassionate ways.
But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy.
James 3:17 NASB
When I have received councel from people that didn’t have such truth supporting their statements and that wisdom caused more problems it seemed then when I didn’t take their insight.
When I learned to stop taking their insight they got agitated with me and declairing “why won’t you listen to me?”
Talk about a turn off.
This was when I had begun taking Godly councel that shed better light then the wisdom I had been getting and they didn’t appreciate me turning a deaf ear to what they shared.
Wisdom that is pure is wisdom that we all need and should cherish. We must exercise disernment to know what type of wisdom we are getting shared with us.
