In my never ending quest for wisdom I soak up these tips from Proverbs 2.

1)  tune your ears to wisdom
2)  concentrate on understanding
3)  cry out for insight
4)  cry out for understanding
5)  search for them as you would for lost money or hidden treasure

  • you will understand what it means to fear the Lord
  • you will gain knowledge of God
How do you get wisdom?

1) (He gives it) The Lord grants wisdom
2) (Read the Word) From his mouth come knowledge and understanding
3) (He grants it) He grants a treasure of good sense to the godly 
4) (Walk with integrity) He is their shield, protecting those who walk with integrity
5) (Walk justly and faithfully) He guards the paths of justice and 
protects those who are faithful to Him. 

  • you will understand what is right, just and fair
  • you will know how to find the right course of action every time
  • wisdom will enter your heart
  • knowledge will fill you with joy
  • wise planning will watch over you
  • understanding will keep you safe
