…..and also wisdom. Buy wisdom and sell is not. Who is wisdom? Christ is this wisdom. In 1 Cor 1:23-24, Paul said:
we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of god and the wisdom of God.
To get this wisdom, you need “the fear of God”. Ps 111:10 declares that: the fear od the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments.
Wisdom helps one to live godly and to make right choices. It is what you need to get whatever you are looking for in life. With Him you can build on the solid rock; least you become like the foolish man who built his house in the sand. Matt 7:26. Where there is wisdom, there is glory, good and long life, strength and vitality.
Seek for wisdom not silver and knowledge rather thanks gold, for wisdom is than rubies, and all the things one may desire cannot be compared with him. Wisdom is what impacts excellence. It is through it that Kings reign and princes decrees. So, the father of a righteous son has great joy, he who has a wise son delights in him. The scriptures says, while the wise is building his house, the foolish will be tearing down his own. So, young man, why should you sell off your wisdom which is a godly virtue for something meagre?
I have discovered that when someone says to you that ‘you lack wisdom’, he is not insulting you. He is simply telling you that you do not know Christ.
In this life, one can gain and acquire carnal knowledge and wisdom, but true(spiritual) wisdom is from God. Therefore, sell yourself to out to Christ and you will be filled with wisdom to love godly.
