When you walk—it matters who takes the journey with you. When walking in the Wisdom of God, you avoid certain pitfalls that would otherwise entrap you.
For further evaluation, in reading 1 Kings 3 & 4, Solomon realized that Wisdom was so essential to achieving success in every God-given assignment. Solomon had a vast number of people to lead and could not do it without God’s help. Therefore, he asked God for a God-listening heart (1 Kings 3:9, MSG).
He asked and received because—Solomon believed God! He became famously known as the wisest king of his day. Therefore, his walk with God mattered!
Wisdom is the state of being wise. It is knowledge of what is right coupled with good judgment and discernment or insight. And a God-listening heart will assure wise decisions. When we use wisdom, it helps us avoid reckless decisions. Lady V and I believe everyone needs wisdom to live skillfully. And a God-listening heart will greatly help one in that process.
So, let’s look at why wisdom is important to our lives as a whole. For instance, the Word of God [The Holy Bible] is filled with wisdom. Therefore, when we read the Word of God, we learn golden nuggets. More specifically, those golden nuggets will light the way and keep us on the right path.
