Daily Devotion: When Wisdom Comes In

Bible Reading: Proverbs 2:10-22

Key Verse: Verse 10 – "When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;"

Key Words: When wisdom entereth into thine heart

If you read the verse following verse 10 you see that when wisdom enters your heart, you attain discretion. You leave the paths of darkness to walk in uprightness.

Automaker Henry Ford asked electrical genius Charlie Steinmetz to build the generators for his factory. One day the generators ground to a halt, and the repairmen couldn’t find the problem. So Ford called Steinmetz, who tinkered with the machines for a few hours and then threw the switch. The generators whirred to life—but Ford got a bill for $10,000 from Steinmetz. Flabbergasted, the rather tightfisted car maker inquired why the bill was so high.

Steinmetz’s reply: For tinkering with the generators, $10. For knowing where to tinker, $9,990. Ford paid the bill.

Wisdom (Godly wisdom) leads to peace and contentment. Worldly wisdom may lead to worldly success, but it will lose the joy and contentment.

Wisdom is the power to see, and the inclination to choose the best and highest goal, together with the surest means of attaining it.—J. I. Packer.

Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you would have preferred to talk.—Doug Larson.

What to do:
✞ If you are tired of a wisdom which produces things, but no joy or contentment, try God’s wisdom.
