“Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves those who have it.  (Ecclesiastes 7:12, NIV)

While many in this world pursue wealth because of its apparent security, Ecclesiastes reminds us that — compared to wisdom — money is an inferior shelter.

Money cannot add years to our life, but wisdom will add life to our years.  Money cannot reveal the secrets of life; but if a persons acquires wisdom, life’s secrets are revealed.

To live according to God’s wisdom is to have all of the things that money cannot buy.   – Luther

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”  (James 1:5, NIV)

Decisions.  Decisions.  Decisions.

Having wisdom makes the burden of making the decisions in our lives much lighter.  The source of wisdom is God, “who gives generously to all.”

The humorist Will Rogers said, “Learn from the mistakes of others; you won’t live long enough to make them all yourself.”  So true.

God’s wisdom is not derived from the collected errors of humanity, but from a perspective that sees all things perfectly.  Invite the wisdom of our heavenly Father into your decisions today.  – Luther
