We must dig into God's Word and apply it to our lives to take hold of the treasure found therein. What are some of these treasures? Proverbs 2 says that when you accept the Word of God and seek to understand and obey it, "[W]isdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you" (Proverbs 2:10-11).

Seek godly wisdom from the Word of the Lord. True wisdom and her benefits are priceless: "Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her" (Proverbs 3:13-15).

Seek godly wisdom from the Word of the Lord.


So what is wisdom? It's not merely the accumulation of knowledge so that one is characterized as smart or savvy, but it is the source of moral and ethical principles, which are integral to a God-honoring lifestyle.

Seek and choose this wisdom—with all its blessings, with all its protection, and with all its promises.

Prayer: God, thank You for the treasures available to us in Your Word. Help me to seek wisdom from Your Word every day. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

"My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge" (Colossians 2:2-3).
