Training in Wisdom

In every area of our lives—work, love, marriage, family—we have decisions we have to make, and if we don’t make them wisely, we’re going to blow up our lives and the lives of people around us. Therefore, being good, being right, being moral, having right moral values is not enough. We have to be wise.

Now how do we get wisdom? Here in chapter 3 of the book of Proverbs we see the beginning of the answer to the question … How do we develop wisdom? How do we grow in it? How do we get it? We’re going to learn how to get wisdom if we understand from this passage the path of wisdom, the process of wisdom, and the man off the mountain.
