Be Godly Wise

Grasp knowledge in a firm embrace.
Open your eyes, your mind, your heart...
Discover, distinguish, deliberate…
Learn understanding at your best pace.
Your expression will radiate grace.
Wisdom brightens the face.
Insight is best, however, with humility.
Skillfulness shackled with pride,
Earnestly, will lead to your disgrace.

Ecclesiastes 8:1 (NLT) How wonderful to be wise, to analyze and interpret things. Wisdom lights up a person’s face, softening its harshness.

1 Corinthians 8:1-2 (The Message) We sometimes tend to think we know all we need to know to answer these kinds of questions—but sometimes our humble hearts can help us more than our proud minds. We never really know enough until we recognize that God alone knows it all.

Proverbs 9:10, 12a. (The Message) Skilled living gets its start in the Fear-of-God, insight into life from knowing a Holy God. Live wisely and wisdom will permeate your life…

I Owe Jesus
