“Logos Sophia”, every Greek mind will understand this at first sight, but the mind tuned to Anglican contrivances will refer to it as “word of wisdom”.
It’s with great pleasure that I wrote to MLT family. All the thanks go to Jemima who thought it fit for such a mind as myself to grace her cyberspace and speak to this huge cyber community. I really appreciate the privilege.
My name is Harkheindzel Kenny O. I am an “iMentor”. (for those who have no idea of who or what an iMentor is, you may avail yourself of the insight to checkout “HARKHEINDZEL INITIATIVE” via (http://www.harkheindzel.wordpress.com). However, this is not about my publicity, It’s about doing justice to the invitation that has been handed to me. With this, please take a journey with me in a few minutes to uncover the crux of “WISDOM THAT PAYS.”
First of all, I will like you to know that wisdom has majorly three areas of action. We have;
* Wisdom in thoughts,
* Wisdom in words, and
* Wisdom in deeds.
I choose to define wisdom as “the precise application of knowledge (known or latent) into instantaneous or foreseen occurrences.”
With that definition out of the way, there are some things to note about wisdom.
1. Wisdom is a Spirit:
the spiritual essence of wisdom is what manifests in various categories/areas. Once you fail to acknowledge that wisdom is a spirit, then you can’t optimize its application. This is the simple definition of folly; “the choice to disdain the existence of wisdom as a spirit”
2. Wisdom is not in quantity but in quality:
the gift of wisdom is not in number, but in value. Let me annotate with this illustration. “knowledge is knowing that sugar makes things sweet, but it is wisdom to know that you don’t add sugar to everything you want to be sweet” (you will understand that quote in a moment).
3. Wisdom is a nature of God that rubs off on you:
There is always a divine factor involved with wisdom. I will like to use this medium to correct a school of thought that describes God as being ‘wiser than the wisest.’ This is so wrong. There is no margin of comparison between a creator and a creature. You cannot use the frailties of man to compare the eminence of God. Simply put it like this; God is the only wise God. (full stop!)
Romans 14:26 to THE ONLY WISE GOD, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever! Amen.
The moment we get this fact, it opens us to true wisdom, it’s operations and applications.
4. Wisdom and the now! – The Supernatural:
We are expected to display wisdom like none other. One of the things this world lacks is wisdom.. True wisdom..! The kinda wisdom that only comes from God. No doubt, there is knowledge, but if you look at everything around you. It points to one huge undeniable fact; that wisdom is lacking. Look at our educational system, financial and fiduciary concerns, economic policies, political arena, religious sector, etc. Everything seems to be in cacophony and rancour because wisdom is lacking. This is the reason you need to be equipped with the wisdom that pays, the wisdom that makes the difference. That’s the supernatural wisdom.
5. Wisdom of the age to Come:
This is the secret to wisdom. This is the wisdom that will give you an edge over all peers and contemporaries. It is not the wisdom of this age or the wisdom of this time, it is the wisdom of the age to come. The interesting thing is that wisdom is available now!… Only to those who value it. Wisdom is not a fool’s price, nor an idle man’s reward. It is a ‘piece du resistance’ that only find their ways into the home of the prudent and diligent.
I cannot start to mention those who have come to the discovery of this particular wisdom. They are easy to know. They are those who have made a mark in history. Different people from different fields and walks of life have stumbled on this wisdom… And the day they did, they became transformed forever.
One of the reasons why the Bible remains a book to be reckoned with for all time is because of the wisdom that oozes from it every time. That kinda wisdom is uncommon. It’s the wisdom of the age to come. That is why it remains ever relevant to every man and beast.
This secret only comes with the spirit of wisdom. It’s the force that has driven men to stand high above the insights of their generations. If you wish to become such a man, then you need to do more than just wishing. You need to ask, seek, and by all means, knock on the door of wisdom.
Wisdom cannot be found with the eyes but only with the spirit. Wisdom can be expressed with the mind but it cannot be gotten with the mind. This is what makes wisdom priceless.
Wisdom can be gotten through many means (both the good and the bad), but the wisdom of God always distinguishes itself at last. This wisdom will show you what you need to do, how to act, where to live, who to marry, when to marry, how to build, how to manage and exponentially grow your assets and resources. If you think this wisdom is not worth getting, then I can conclude that you are not ready to start living.
One important way to get the wisdom is through INDUCTION. Yes, wisdom can be induced from one person to another (remember it’s a spirit). It can be induced either from God or from man.
Everything boils down to your relationship with both. If you relate well with EITHER (GOD OR MAN), you can be graced to enjoy the rubbing off of wisdom. Just LIKE the way the spirit rubbed off from GOD to MOSES (God to man), then MOSES and JOSHUA (man to man).
“Deut 34:9 Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands on him. The children of Israel listened to him, and did as Yahweh commanded Moses.”
This is where mentorship is very important. A lot of things have been induced or based from the mentor to the men tee. So don’t joke with these destiny relationships.
On a final note, I would like to say that it is not too late to take on wisdom. The rewards are always the same no matter when you choose to join the wisdom train. All you just need to do is act. Step out and step into the operation of God’s wisdom. (Matthew 10:1-14)
You can thank me later.
