Linking up with Amanda over at With a Joyful Noise.
“But where shall wisdom be found?and where is the place of understanding?
God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.
Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out.
And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.”
Job 28:12, 23, 27 & 28
These verses are so beautiful to me. God, Who established the earth and all things therein (read the whole chapter for a beautifully descriptive picture of this), also gave wisdom and then tells how to find it. It is by following hard after Him in the fear of the Lord, and eschewing, that is to shun or avoid, evil.
Oh, how I desire to be a person that is wise by this definition!
