What better way to transform our lives in 2020 than by God's wisdom? In this 16-part podcast series titled "Wisdom is a Choice," we are examining every chapter of the ultimate wisdom book, Proverbs. In our fourth podcast episode in the new series, we examine Proverbs 7–8. Some key verses from these chapters are:
"I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion. ... Counsel and sound judgment are mine; I have insight, I have power. ... I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity. My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yield surpasses choice silver" (Proverbs 8:12, 14, 17–19 NIV).
The prevailing view of our culture is that wealth equals wisdom. There are few things that are further from the truth. Furthermore, pursuing our own desires will not bring us happiness. There are things far more valuable. The most valuable thing of all, the currency that we should seek, is God's wisdom.
