The Bible says in Colossians 2:3,
“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.”
The treasures of Wisdom and knowledge are hidden in Christ.
Proverbs 2 says if we truly want wisdom, knowledge, and insight. Then we need to call out for it. We must cry out for it. We must search for it like silver. Search for it as much as we work and search for money. Search for it as much as we like partying. Search for it as much as we like doing whatever it is we do. Search for it like it’s a hidden treasure. Because it is and only those who really want it that will find it.
Search for it like your life depends on it.
Without wisdom, salvation, which is the great and powerful gift of God is foolishness unto man.
Without wisdom, a man says there is no God.
Without wisdom, man continues to dwell and live in sin because he doesn’t understand what is right and wrong.
Without wisdom, man continues to drift away from life and closer to death.
Without wisdom, man’s words are perverse and they delight in doing wrong.
Without wisdom, material things, acquisition of wealth, fame and popularity are the most important things to a man.
Without wisdom, a man will gain the whole world and lose his own soul.
Without wisdom, a man will sleep with a fellow man, a woman with a fellow woman, a human will sleep with an animal or a plastic doll.
Without wisdom, man will wake up and suddenly decide to change his/her gender.
Without wisdom, princes and princesses of God live as slaves to the devil and his world.
Without the wisdom of who God is and His kingdom, many continue to perish in the futility and vanity of the world.
So, you see how important wisdom is?
Your life really depends on it. Are you just existing (foolish) or are you really living (wise)?
How do we get wisdom?
By going to God for it. As aforementioned, you need to search deeply for it. You can start with your Bible. That is one place with lots of hidden treasures of wisdom. You just keep discovering and discovering.
Also, Proverbs 6 says, “For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.” Listen to His voice and word in all you do.
For there’s a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death (Proverbs 14: 12).
For the wisdom of man and that of this world is pure foolishness. So, let’s seek God’s wisdom in all we do.
