One of the greatest desires of my life is to be a woman marked by wisdom. I watch many foolish actions and rash decisions unfold around me on a daily basis. I want to fight the trend of floating along without intentional goals.
I want to be a wife my husband seeks counsel from, a daughter that my parents respect, and a friend that others can depend on. Though some of those desires refer to loyalty, maturity, or honesty, the underlying theme is wisdom.
The best definition of wisdom I have ever heard was that wisdom is God’s perspective on matters.
Let that soak in a minute. Wisdom is God’s perspective.
When we ask for wisdom, what are we really desiring? Clarity in thought and action. Appropriate words and responses.
Without the Holy Spirit in our lives to guide and direct us, we will not have wisdom.
