Life has been scripted, by the hands of the Almighty. But it is said that God is the creator of all things: good and bad, pure and evil. Aye, this script is far from the one-way lane. As it goes, so it comes; such that there ends up being the road not taken.
How then to discern this beats man's highest imagination, but at some point to stop by a fountain, a deep welling spring, the true source-the very depths of wisdom...and take one's fill to the very brim, to capacity, even to overflowing, until one becomes a conduit of this highly-rated virtue which is the bedrock of life, and the flight to greatness. Indeed, the psalmist's scion sought it and got it in so much abundance that none till this day can measure up, no, not till the much-awaited kingdom is established on earth.
So much time spent on this shows its immeasurable import. For with wisdom, one is rightly guided into divine accuracy. "Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." How to get this inestimable jewel of the greatest value? "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." To get wisdom, you must fear God, and love Him "with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind." You must also "love your neighbour as yourself."
.........
"Back to life, back to reality", goes a Soul II Soul oldie. Yea, reality is: none of God's images can make a positive and long-lasting headway in this pilgrimage through earth unless armed with 3 weapons - wisdom, love, and faith.
"Wisdom is the principal thing, therefore get wisdom..."
"And now abides faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love."
"But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that comes to God must believe that He is..."
It is only by faith that we can love an unseen God, and one who loves God according to the Greatest Commandment is the wisest person ever.
