The Wellspring of Wisdom

The book of Proverbs is one of the best places in the Bible to look at the topic of wisdom. Wisdom is a lot more than just having high moral values. It is knowing what the right thing to do is in the majority of life situations where the moral rules don’t apply. The most right and virtuous word or deed done at the wrong time, done in the wrong way or in the wrong order, can blow everything up.

Wisdom is not having a technique that helps you make right choices and decisions, but it’s having character of the mind and the heart that enables you to make the right choices. So how do you get that character? Today we’re going to look at 1) how this character develops, 2) where it comes from, and 3) how it can be transformed.
