Wise heart

20 October 2021
‘If your heart is wise, then my heart will be glad indeed.’

As we’re growing up, we can often begin to resent our parents’ wisdom. We want to do things our own way. We think we know better than they do. And sometimes we do. But a lot of the time, our parents, or youth leaders, or tutors, do know best. They can speak into our lives from experience. And if we’ve got parents who are praying for wisdom in how to bring us up, we’ll definitely be able to learn a few things from them. One of the things parents often want for their children is wisdom. They want us to make the right choices in life, they want us to choose good things. When Solomon was writing to his son, he said: ‘If your heart is wise, then my heart will be glad indeed.’ So how can we make sure we have a wise heart? We can test the wisdom we receive from others by seeing if it matches with God’s Word, and we can ask God directly for His wisdom too. God’s wisdom is far greater and far more extensive than any human wisdom. The Bible says: ‘For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding’ (Proverbs 2:6 NIV). God’s wisdom is different from human wisdom. We’re told: ‘The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere’ (James 3:17 NIV). And when we have God’s wisdom, we’re different too. We’re more assured in our steps forward, we have peace in our decisions, so let’s ask for His wisdom today.                                                        

What Now?

Do you feel like your heart is full of God’s wisdom? If not, ask Him to impart some wisdom to you today, and then use that wisdom in any decisions you need to make.
