Ask for Wisdom (Small Change #1)

It actually makes sense why asking for wisdom is #1. We probably make decisions every second of our life.

What to do next? What to eat? Where to go? Should I say yes or no?

In order to have a better life, we need to make sound decision. We have to be wise to choose what is right for us. We need to ask the Lord for wisdom. And everything else will follow - better marriage, the right parenting skills, people skills, productive day at work, the right priorities, more savings.

Now here are the steps to take to ask God for wisdom --
  • Desire wisdom - We have to want it!
  • Pray for wisdom - Ask God for it.
  • Seek wisdom - You will find insights on wisdom in the book of Proverbs.
  • Grow in wisdom - It doesn't stop after receiving wisdom, we have to keep living and growing in it.
As my task for the day, I had to pick a verse from a chapter in Proverbs, write it down and carry it with me throughout the day.

This is what I picked --

For the waywardness of the simple will kill them,
and the complacency of fools will destroy them;

but whoever listens to me will live in safety
and be at ease, without fear of harm."

- Proverbs 1: 32-33 (NIV)
