Topic: Wisdom The Principal [11/5/2016]
Text: Ecclesiastes 10:10
Wisdom, scripture says, is principal (Proverbs 4:7), that is, wisdom is the most important thing, the fundamental of all that should be acquired. Wisdm is the first pursuit all of that will attain unprecedented heights. That is why we are enjoyed to make the pursuit of wisdom our first goal in life, because it is the foundation our houses (life) is built on.
Scripture says in Ecclesiastes 10:10 "if the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct." When a man lacks wisdom He tends to exact more strength to achieve his goal which sometimes is fruitless, but a man cannot prevail by strength (1 Samuel 2:9), for wisdom is better than strength (Ecclesiastes 9:16).
So we must go for the principal, wisdom for it is life to them that have it (Ecclesiastes 7:12). And Christ, who is life is our Principal, the fundamental that all men should have. For in Him (Christ) is hid all treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Colossians 2:3), because He was made unto us wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:30). So when you have Christ you have wisdom, and He gives you life and victory always.
Go for the principal (Christ) and keep winning daily.
Dear Lord, thank You for Christ that lives in me. He is wisdom to me and He directs my path, causing me to triumph always, as I apply His principled wisdom and knowledge always, in Jesus name. Amen
