characteristics of a wise person

Blue Skies MI AUG 2013Good morning! Headed to Texas today to work with a great group of people this weekend.

Do you seek wisdom? Many of us consume information and seek information – which is easy these days as we have a glut of information (good and bad) due to the Internet. Some of us go even further and seek knowledge. But how many of us are wise and seekers of wisdom? There seems to be a great shortage of wisdom and a great need for wisdom.

What are some of the characteristics of a wise person?

  • They seek and have insight
  • They seek and embrace challenges to their thinking and accept correction
  • They continue to learn and seek instruction from others
  • They seek Truth

“Leave your simple ways, and live, and walk in the way of insight. . . reprove a wise man, and he will love you. Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.” Proverbs 9:6, 8-11

Seek wisdom to honor God and to bless others.

Have a great weekend!
