Something often called for these days is just a little bit of wisdom in our national political and societal discourse. But wisdom takes time, it is the result of a life lived thoughtfully; and, it is either compounded or diminished by what role the Bible plays in that life. The Bible gives us wisdom we have not yet learned or even understand fully yet; but in its pages and in conversation with God, we can access wisdom beyond our years. But before we can be wise, we must first be knowledgeable. We must seek knowledge in all aspects of life, but especially in the spiritual aspects of life. How are we to love Jesus if we know nothing of him? How are to understand God’s calling for us if we know nothing of Him? God says in Hosea to the Israelites, “My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.” Seeking knowledge of the Lord, his ways, his words, and his love is imperative to a life of wisdom, purpose, and mercy. Today, if you are seeking wisdom, start with seeking knowledge of the Lord and allow that knowledge to grow into a strong relationship.

“My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.” — Hosea 4:6 NIV
