Speaks Of Wisdom And Understanding

Do you know what exactly the meaning of wisdom? The word "wisdom" always interest me. Who doesn't know the story about King Solomon? A super duper wise King. Even the bible mention that there will be no other King as wise as him in 1 King 3:12, I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be.

Interesting isn't it! I often ask and pray to God to give me wisdom. I thought I understand enough what wisdom means and what is required to get such a wisdom. We often use words we think we understand, until someone asks us to define them. Aren't we? 

If you ask me to define wisdom, I will think for a seconds and errmmm... my answer will be different times to times. I have done a research, and there's so many different result about the definition of wisdom. 
It might be "the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting; insight." 
Or it might be "a wise outlook, plan, or course of action."
Or it will be "the sum of learning through the ages; knowledge"

And actually none of that answer satisfy me. Yet, this morning my quite time state all clear. 

Job 28:12-28 NLT Version
12“But do people know where to find wisdom? Where can they find understanding? 13No one knows where to find it, for it is not found among the living. 14‘It is not here,’ says the ocean. ‘Nor is it here,’ says the sea. 
15It cannot be bought with gold. It cannot be purchased with silver. 16It’s worth more than all the gold of Ophir, greater than precious onyx or lapis lazuli. 17Wisdom is more valuable than gold and crystal. It cannot be purchased with jewels mounted in fine gold. 18Coral and jasper are worthless in trying to get it. The price of wisdom is far above rubies. 19Precious peridot from Ethiopia cannot be exchanged for it. It’s worth more than the purest gold. 
20“But do people know where to find wisdom? Where can they find understanding? 21It is hidden from the eyes of all humanity. Even the sharp-eyed birds in the sky cannot discover it. 22Destruction and Death say, ‘We’ve heard only rumors of where wisdom can be found.’ 
23“God alone understands the way to wisdom; He knows where it can be found, 24 for He looks throughout the whole earth and sees everything under the heavens. 25 He decided how hard the winds should blow and how much rain should fall. 26He made the laws for the rain and laid out a path for the lightning. 27Then he saw wisdom and evaluated it. He set it in place and examined it thoroughly. 
28And this is what He says to all humanity: ‘The fear of the Lord is true wisdom; to forsake evil is real understanding.’”

What is wisdom? How does anyone become wise? Simple answer --> Fear the Lord with all your might, for it is the beginning of wisdom (Prov9:10).

Be blessed and oh how I miss writing! *drools*

Three Stories

Once, all villages decided to pray for rain.
On the day of prayer all people gathered,
but only one boy came with umbrella.
That's faith.

When you throw a one year old baby in the air,
he laughs.
Because he knows his father will catch him.
That's trust.

Every night we go to bed,
we have no assurance to wake up alive next morning,
but still we set alarm for tomorrow.
That's hope. 


Simple story yet so true. Keep your faith alive, always trust and do not lose hope :)
