‘WISDOM…let’s talk about ‘that’ for a moment. Wisdom is something that the Corporate World has relied on for decades; the passing of the wand; sort of speaking. Corporate cannot survive without the Wisdom of the old Regime. This is why we see the “younger up-start” sitting in the office of the seasoned veteran, long after closing time…digging deep in the old fellow’s grey matter…extracting the good stuff…for his own…potential betterment.
Because we are made in the Image of God, we are the receptacle of His Wisdom, but we only come about receiving it, through His love and mercy. It is a “gift of the Holy Spirit.” God ‘expects’ us to use the gift of wisdom to Honor Him….not ourselves. Failing that…we might find ourselves wisdom-less.
Acts 4:31 – After they had prayed, their meeting place was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly. Acts 6:3 – Therefore, brothers, select from among you seven men confirmed to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will appoint this responsibility to them
Through Wisdom… we evaluate the “things of the world” in view of the highest end of man—the contemplation of God. Though God extends to us the gift of Wisdom, we also may obtain it prematurely, by simply asking God for it… just as Solomon did. It is God’s ‘gift’ to give….or take away.
Isaiah 11:2 – And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of Wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord.
