So where do we turn? Colleges, Universities, the self-help section of Barnes and Noble, or maybe older/wiser men?
Education and experience has its place and is valuable, but notice what Solomon (the wisest man to ever live) says wisdom must be built upon as the foundation…”the fear of the Lord.”
Our pursuit of wisdom and understanding must begin with the One who created all and knows all. Books, universities, and the wisdom of those who have gone before you have their value, but what you learn there must have, as its foundation, a proper view and pursuit of God.
With this foundation, we can live what Paul describes in Ephesians 4:14 –
…we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth.
Seek wisdom. It begins with God and His Word!
Rest in Jesus
