HOW DO WE GET WISDOM?

I am sure you are like me. I long to hear from God and understand what He is saying. I long for wisdom. I long for knowledge. And I want to be instructed (Proverbs 1:2-3).

However, I notice that the word "instruction" is usually the Hebrew word, "muwcar" which means "chastisement, reproof, warning, restraint, rebuke." Oh my. We don't like that, do we? And yet I find that we only grow in wisdom and understanding as we are open to reproof. We only mature in the knowledge of God as we have a soft and tender heart to the Holy Spirit as He speaks to us through HIs Word, and yes, sometimes through our husband, and other people, too!

It goes against our flesh to receive rebuke and counsel, but this is the only way we mature (Hebrews 12:9-11).

As we imbibe this attitude toward God and to others, our children also learn that this is the lifestyle you live to become mature. This is the attitude you need if you want discernment in this society of deception.
