Pursuit of Wisdom

In Proverbs chapter 4, King Solomon wrote that one needs to pursue the wisdom of God. He advised they should not only pursue it, but also to not forget it once they have obtained it. When God asked him the one thing he wanted, Solomon chose the wisdom of God. To him, wisdom was more important than riches. He wanted God's wisdom to properly judge the people. 

Today we study God's Word to glean His wisdom. God's wisdom is just as important now as it was then. We, as Christians, are to pursue God's wisdom through the study of His Word by the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Small group Bible studies are another way to obtain the wisdom of God. A spirit filled and led Bible study will enlighten the mind and feed the spirit. An enlightened mind and a fed spirit are essential to a fruit bearing ministry.
