It seems that everywhere we look and in every part of our life there are demands. Family members who think they need more money to help them with this idea or need. There are demands at work, demands and pressures in society. There are even lawsuits on Facebook when we get a news feed asking for donations. Our own physical bodies have requirements and needs to eat a proper diet, take time to exercise, and get adequate rest. Meanwhile, we wonder where to find wisdom on how to respond to every situation and need.
I'm never sure what to do
With all the demands, it can be a challenge knowing where to find wisdom. We all have the same 24 hours a day and while some may be born into wealthy families or highly intelligent families, we all start out in our lives with absolutely nothing in our hands and without knowledge or wisdom. Yet why does it seem that some have all the answers and the success to find wisdom, while others seem to struggle and stumble throughout their lives?
We all know 50-year-olds who can't make ends meet financially and always seem to be struggling. There is always some lack somewhere in our lives. We all struggle with decisions like who to marry, how do I make the most money, should I buy that gadget or should I go on vacation, and even how can I help my children improve and find wisdom and เที่ยวไหนดี.
What is wisdom?
First of all, it is good to know what wisdom is. Webster's Dictionary defines wisdom this way: knowledge, insight, judgment; generally accepted belief; the teachings of the ancient sages. James 1: 5 says: "But if any of you lacks wisdom, ask God for it, who gives generously and without reproach to all, and it will be given to him." We are supposed to ask for wisdom. Proverbs 4: 7 "The principle of wisdom is: Get wisdom; And with whatever you get, get understanding." Therefore, we are supposed to obtain wisdom and it is something that we can obtain.
Where to find wisdom
Today there are many places where people seek wisdom and find their way. Recently, a member of my family lost his way and ended up in quite serious health situations and in hospitals. Doctors sent psychologists and occupational therapists to speak with him. He was referred to outpatient clinics, inpatient clinics. His doctor told him that he needed to seek help. People visited him to show their concern. This family member rejected everyone and said that he did not believe that what they had to offer would help him because all they had to give was only his opinions. However, he remained in his pit of trouble not knowing how to get out. Where can someone like that turn to find wisdom?
A light in the dark
I remember several verses in the Bible that tell us where the light and wisdom can be found so as not to stumble in the dark. "Because with you is the source of life; in your light we see the light." (Psalm 36: 9) Although the answer is the Word of God, the Bible, some Christians think that the Bible is like a Ouija board and that when they have to make a decision or are not clear about their path, they open the Bible, close the eyes. and put an index finger on a verse, and voila, there is the answer! Not only can this be dangerous depending on what verse your finger touches, but it still leaves us in the dark. It may surprise many people to learn that simply reading the Bible (although that is an important place to start) will not give them wisdom. In the verse "The development of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple." (Psalm 119: 130) According to Webster, the word "unfold" means to open wide, extend, expand, or unwrap.
