How do you see Wisdom?

This morning this has been on my mind- Wisdom- What is it? How do you see it?

Wisdom- 1828 Webster
 The right use or exercise of knowledge; the choice of laudable ends, and of the best means to accomplish them. This is wisdom in act, effect, or practice. If wisdom is to be considered as a faculty of the mind, it is the faculty of discerning or judging what is most just, proper and useful, and if it is to be considered as an acquirement, it is the knowledge and use of what is best, most just, most proper, most conducive to prosperity or happiness. Wisdom in the first sense, or practical wisdom, is nearly synonymous with discretion. It differs somewhat from prudence, in this respect; prudence is the exercise of sound judgment in avoiding evils; wisdom is the exercise of sound judgment either in avoiding evils or attempting good. Prudence then is a species, of which wisdom is the genus.

Proverbs 1:2-7
For learning what wisdom and discipline are;
for understanding insightful sayings;
 for receiving wise instruction
in righteousness, justice, and integrity;
 for teaching shrewdness to the inexperienced,
knowledge and discretion to a young man —
 a wise man will listen and increase his learning,

and a discerning man will obtain guidance
for understanding a proverb or a parable,
the words of the wise, and their riddles.
 The fear of the Lord
is the beginning of knowledge;

fools despise wisdom and discipline

Proverbs 3:13-18
Happy is a man who finds wisdom
and who acquires understanding,
 for she is more profitable than silver,
and her revenue is better than gold.
 She is more precious than jewels;
nothing you desire compares with her.
 Long life is in her right hand;
in her left, riches and honor.
 Her ways are pleasant,
and all her paths, peaceful.
 She is a tree of life to those who embrace her,

and those who hold on to her are happy

Wisdom is suppose to be looked upon as a precious thing, something to be cherished. Is that how you see it? When your parents are sharing their wisdom, their knowledge to guide you- do you see that as a curse or a blessing?

Do you see their heart? They have your best interest in mind, they care about what happens to you, and how many pits you fall into. Why would you desire to fall into those pits? 

We live in such a sadistic world- living lives stating "we must experience it for ourselves", " we need to learn on our own", " the best way to learn is to do it and go through it yourself", why? Where is that in scripture? Have you thought about how your see things and think? Does it line up with scripture are you a result of society, doing what others do, learning as they go, and not seeing the blessing behind the Wisdom given to you through your parents or older wiser counsel. 

Who do you seek counsel from? Older wiser people or people your own age, who doing things as you are doing them??

I wish when I was young I saw the wisdom being bestowed on my life as cherished jewels. I did not have anyone guiding me through scripture. I had no idea what or how precious those words were. Now through the pain, through life, I have come to this place realizing how foolish youth are, and how they take advantage of their youth, their time, the moments the Lord gives them to embrace wisdom, and use it to bring glory to HIM in their lives. 

 SO be it another generation who does not LOVE wisdom or see it as the blessing it is. 

Solo para la gloria de Dios
