Wisdom

Solomon of old asked God for one thing, Wisdom.  Having been granted his prayer, he is acknowledged as one of the wisest men of all time.

I believe that wisdom is NOT the ability to think wise thoughts.  Wisdom is actuating knowledge of truth.  Wisdom is in the living, not in the thinking.

Until one lives truth, true thoughts are little more than electro-chemical impulses of the brain.  Noble thoughts though they may be, failure to live by them will condemn rather than redeem us. 

James 1:5
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

Conclusion:  I must pray much harder for the wisdom to ACT in truth, for I know that my behavior falls far short of my best thoughts.
