How To Get Wisdom

Decisions, decisions, decisions….
We make decisions every day.
Our lives are pretty much a summary of the decisions we’ve made.
How do we mage good decisions?
There was a man who was a department head who was a very wise man. One day he was asked, “Sir, what is the secret of your success?”
He said, “Two words.”
“And, Sir, what are they?”
“Right decisions.”
“But how do you make right decisions?”
“One word.” He responded.
“And, sir, What is that?” “Experience.”
“And how do you get Experience?” “Two words.”
“And, Sir, what are they?”
“Wrong decisions.”
Most of us have unfortunately, had experience in making bad decisions. But we want to make good decisions. How do we do it?
Proverbs 7:7 says, “Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! And whatever else you do, develop good judgment.”
We need wisdom to make good decisions. But where do we get wisdom? We get it from the Lord. We need to follow the example of King Solomon. When Solomon became King of Israel he went to the Lord and asked for wisdom. He could have asked for wealth or fame but instead, he asked for wisdom and Solomon was known as a very wise man.
James 1:5 says, “But if any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”
Today, we all need wisdom and the Lord wants to give it to us. Ask Him and He will grant us wisdom.
