The key to being wise is taking God’s commands to heart. Proverbs 3:5 says to us…
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.
Similarly, Proverbs 4:4:
Take hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands, and you will live.
Because, Proverbs 4:23:
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
To be wise we need to be reading God’s word in Scripture and letting it soak in. But even more, constantly doing his word with obedient hearts.
Our world says get experienced, get skilled, get educated, get connections, then you’ll succeed. Proverbs says: ‘No you won’t!’
Instead for real wisdom we need to get God’s word into our hearts. Then we are wise to live, for everything we do flows from him.
