“Wisdom can make your life pleasant and lead you safely through it. Those who become wise are happy; wisdom will give them life.” (Proverbs 3: 17-18, Good News Translation)
This proverb would advise us that ignorance really is not bliss. To feel honest joy, we must gain wisdom. And wisdom is not merely accumulating information. It is discernment, good judgment, an understanding of things from both a higher and a deeper standpoint.
Without an aspiration after wisdom, we are really settling for less. If we take everything at face value or if we agree with what is fed to us in the realm of human opinion with its limits and fears, we miss out on a fuller life.
This wisdom is not something that must come with age and experience or that some have, and some don’t. True wisdom is spiritual. We gain it by our receptivity—our willingness to listen for that voice of God, of Truth—and then to trust what we hear.
God’s wisdom is ours freely. It leads us safely through our lives and feeds us with pleasing moments and new opportunities full of discovery, progress, and happiness.
