WISDOM

In many Indian cultures the owl is a symbol of death or foreboding. In modern Western cultures we think of the “wise old owl”. This idea of the owl symbolizing wisdom goes back to the Greek goddess Athena, the goddess of wisdom where the owl was used as a symbol. Wisdom and knowledge are talked about quite a lot in the Bible, especially in the Book of Proverbs. “Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget My words or swerve from them. . . . Wisdom is supreme, therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.” (Proverbs 4:5 and 7). “Choose My instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, . . . ” (Proverbs 8: 10-11). When Solomon became king of Israel he could ask God for anything he wanted. Here’s what he asked for, “Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of Yours?” (II Chronicles 1:10). Wisdom and knowledge in the Lord are paramount. How do we get this wisdom and knowledge? Ask God for it through prayer and study your Bible.  Wisdom and Knowledge are at our fingertips.
