[quote style=”boxed”]Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Proverbs 4:7[/quote]

Wisdom is important to God and it should be important to us. In fact, the Bible calls wisdom the principal or primary thing. Why is it so important? Because wise people do things that promote a godly, healthy, fulfilling lifestyle.

Here are seven things that wise people do:

1. A Wise Person Listens To Authority

Those who walk in wisdom obey their parents and welcome direction/orders from those in charge. (Prov. 1:5; 23:15, 23:24, 10:8)

2. A Wise Person Seeks To Increase In Knowledge

Knowledge is never gained by simply wishing for it. Wise people search for ways to acquire knowledge. (Prov. 18:15; 1:5; 12:15; 9:9; 10:14; 15:2,7)

3. A Wise Person Is Surrounded By Wise Company

The old saying goes: “You are who you associate with!” Those who walk in wisdom choose their friends wisely. (Prov. 13:20; 6:6; 9:8; 15:31)

4. A Wise Person Successfully Leads Others

Wise people make good leaders and problem solvers, not problem makers. (Prov. 11:29; 21:22)

5. A Wise Person Plans For The Future

When you’re full of wisdom, you prepare for your future, build your househould and prosper in business. (Prov. 24:5; 14:1; 10:5)

6. A Wise Person Has Discernment

Wise people watch what they say, avoid contention, depart from evil and live sober lives. (Prov. 10:10; 17:28; 29:11; 29:8; 28:7; 14:16; 20:1)

7. A Wise Person Reaches The Lost

The most rewarding benefit of living a life of wisdom is being effective in winning souls! (Prov. 11:30)

Are you doing these things listed above? If you want to walk in wisdom, ask and you shall receive:

[quote style=”boxed”]My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
James 1:2-8[/quote]
