Jesus said, “What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?”
When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Wisdom, we are told, comes from God, and therefore is of infinite value.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
Big Idea: We cannot live life in the best way possible if we ignore the wisdom offered by the author of all life.
1. God’s wisdom is practical
Listen as Wisdom calls out! Hear as understanding raises her voice! On the hilltop along the road, she takes her stand at the crossroads. By the gates at the entrance to the town, on the road leading in, she cries aloud, “I call to you, to all of you! I raise my voice to all people. You simple people, use good judgment. You foolish people, show some understanding.

2. God’s Wisdom is reliable
Why is God’s Wisdom reliable?
a. God’s instruction is always right
Listen to me! For I have important things to tell you. Everything I say is right,
b. God’s motives are always pure
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
c. God’s perspective is always fair
My advice is wholesome. There is nothing devious or crooked in it.
d. God’s logic is always flawless
My words are plain to anyone with understanding, clear to those with knowledge. Choose my instruction rather than silver, and knowledge rather than pure gold. For wisdom is far more valuable than rubies. Nothing you desire can compare with it.
So, how do I live by God’s wisdom?
By walking daily with Christ.
Start and end your day with God—reading, studying, meditating on scripture, daily prayer and surround yourself with the body of Christ
By prayerfully allowing the Holy Spirit reveal God’s wisdom through His Word. You cannot daily walk with Christ and ignore His Word.
