Building Blocks for Wisdom

in God

So how do you know if you've found God's wisdom? Here's a little help from the Bible Minute.

Let's read from Proverbs 2:4-5, "If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the LORD, And find the knowledge of God."

Notice there are two things that he says are the substance of wisdom. Number one, you'll understand the fear of the Lord. And number two, you will find the knowledge of God.

The fear of the Lord is the common, basic building block of all wisdom. Proverbs 9:10 says almost the same thing, "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."

So build up your knowledge of the Lord today, with more resources from backtothebible.org.
