From a wise mind comes wise speech;
the words of the wise are persuasive.
Proverbs 16: 23 (NLT)
Have you ever met any person whose ambition in life was to increase in foolishness? Okay, let me re-phrase my question: have you met anyone who admitted that he/she wanted to become more and more foolish? I doubt it. But then, life is full of surprises. So what's my point? As we grow older, most of us aspire to grow wiser. So, increasing in wisdom is an acknowledged goal.
Thankfully, we have a God who also wants us to increase in wisdom. In fact, James 1:5 clearly states that "if any of you needs wisdom, you should ask God for it. He is generous to everyone and will give you wisdom without criticizing you." (NCV) That's good news, isn't it? The easiest way to tell if a complete stranger is wise is to listen to what he or she says. Why? Because "from a wise mind comes wise speech." It is that simple.
So as you start a brand new week, as you make major and minor decisions, ask God for wisdom. Ask Him to fill you with wisdom. In fact, make a habit of asking God for wisdom in everything you do. He won't criticize you. The wisdom you receive from God will enrich your mind and it will manifest in the quality of decisions you make. In time, you will be considered to be a wise man. But, don't forget the source of your wisdom: God Almighty.
