Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.
-Proverbs 4:6-7 (NIV)
This is the space where we'll post regular short, sharp and life changing wisdom. After all, the best leaders, regardless of if whether it's in ministry or elsewhere, are life long learners.
In today's fast paced world that can be something that is easy to skip over. Life is hectic at the best of times. It's so easy to say I'll read that book tomorrow, I'll ask that pastor for advice next week and so on. The thing is, what's the point of skipping the very things that produce the best fruit in your life?
Not only does every great college in the world teach the value of wisdom but long before any on us were even founded the Bible spoke about the value of wisdom. Here, it says that wisdom watches over and protects us. The thing with protection is you often get no warning of when you need it. A seatbelt doesn't warn you three days before an accident that you'll need it. We put our seatbelts on and in a sense it kind of 'watches out' till the moment when we need its 'protection' and then it's right where it should be.
We don't wait till we need protection from a seat belt. Instead, we get in the habit of putting it on before the time arrives. Treat wisdom the same. Become a life long learner. Chase after wisdom. Cherish it. Value it above the busy and often hectic things that strive for our time and attention. Because in the end, Godly wisdom will watch over and protect you just in the moment you need it most.
