“Because of him, you are in Christ Jesus, who was made to us wisdom from God,” Paul says (1 Corinthians 1:30).
God created His children with independent thought and free will. What treasures await us when we use our mental gifts to explore the rich depths of divine power and love!
Jesus is the ultimate source of wisdom
Because of him, you are in Christ Jesus, who was made to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption.
Be wise in what is good
For your obedience has become known to all. I rejoice therefore over you. But I desire to have you wise in that which is good, but innocent in that which is evil.
Following God’s commandments makes me wise
Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, for your commandments are always with me.
Supreme wisdom comes from God
Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past tracing out! “For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?” “Or who has first given to him, and it will be repaid to him again?” For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things. To him be the glory for ever! Amen.
God’s law has wisdom built in
Behold, I have taught you statutes and ordinances, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that you should do so in the middle of the land where you go in to possess it. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples who shall hear all these statutes and say, “Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.”
Wisdom is of great benefit
Happy is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gets understanding. For her good profit is better than getting silver, and her return is better than fine gold.
The wisest person cannot compare to God
For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He has taken the wise in their craftiness.” And again, “The Lord knows the reasoning of the wise, that it is worthless.”
The fear of the Lord leads to wisdom
There will be stability in your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge. The fear of the LORD is your treasure.
Ask God for wisdom and He will give it to you
But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
Knowing the Scriptures makes me wise
From infancy, you have known the holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith, which is in Christ Jesus.
