You know, there’s more to our life in Christ than most of us realize. And that’s because most of us are satisfied and content with far less than what God has planned for us. Consider one of the primary purposes of acquiring wisdom:
A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, (why) to understand a proverb and an enigma, the words of the wise and their riddles – Proverbs 1:5-6.
The climax, the zenith of wisdom is to be able to understand an “enigma” (or, a person or thing that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand, also a riddle, a symbol or parable, a discourse requiring an interpretation) and the words of the wise and their “riddles” (or, difficult questions, perplexing sayings, statements with double meanings, or dark or obscure utterances). It is the ability to comprehend the deep, dark sayings of the Lord. The hidden truths, the obscure meanings of His Words.
Yes, that is our inheritance in Him via His wisdom. So how are you doing in the wisdom arena? To find out more, keep listening.
The following is a study of Proverbs 1:5-6.
