|Today we will continue our discussion of what I call the “Golden Trinity,” which consists of the three greatest heavenly treasures found in God’s Word. The first treasure is: Favor with God and man; the second treasure is: Wisdom; and the third is: Faith. Several days ago, I mentioned the story of Solomon and the great wisdom he possessed early on before he turned away from the Lord. Wisdom is a superpower and its treasures are joy, success, and a good life. Interestingly, wisdom is often confused with knowledge. Science gives us knowledge, but it cannot provide us with wisdom! It’s for this reason that some of the smartest people in the world, who have tons of knowledge, have miserable lives. Their bank accounts are empty, they can’t find happiness in a relationship, and they keep toxic people in their inner circle. They confuse knowledge with wisdom. Scientific understanding looks like this: Understanding observations, measurements, facts, or principles. On the other hand, here’s what learning and wisdom look like: It is a change in behavior based on past experiences. If your behavior hasn’t changed, you haven’t grown in wisdom. Friend, in order to learn and develop wisdom, you have to change your behavior. Through trial and error or by learning from others’ mistakes, wisdom can be gained! On the positive side, you can also gain wisdom by watching someone make wise decisions. The greatest secret to wisdom can be found in James 1:5, which says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” You can treasure wisdom — it can be yours!
