Be Wise and Know

There are a lot of things to be said about wisdom, and by wisdom, as mostly in Proverbs it is wisdom who cries out. Beautifully enough wisdom is characterized as a woman. Now for me every time wisdom is mentioned, there is one blog and blogger that comes to mind. 'Be Wise and Know' by Danielle Braxton, other wise known as Elegant Granny.

The Bible says Wisdom and Knowledge shall be the stability of our times...(Isaiah 33:6)  So that's all the time, as long as we live. It doesn't matter if it's June 1, 2012 or April 14, 2030 whatever the time is  actively using wisdom and knowledge will always provide stability.

Each and every person needs wisdom and knowledge especially in this world that changes so fast.



In honor of Granny, here are 5 Biblical quotes from Proverbs on wisdom as they pertain to the success, love, and happiness of living:


Life
Wisdom comes fully packed, better than beautiful blind justice herself, wisdom's hands are balanced with all the essentials: Long life is in her right hand;in her left hand are riches and honor.  (Proverbs 3:16)

Money
Having wisdom is more valuable than anything we could ever possess: for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. (Proverbs 3: 14-15)

Family
Wisdom has more abundance than your family tree, and makes for an even better community: She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed. (Proverbs 3:18)


Faith
Wisdom and guidance is found in trusting God: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3: 5-6)


Love
Truly knowing and valuing wisdom with all you heart gives you a good reputation. It's so charming that everyone will like you: Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. (Proverbs 3: 3-4)



Thanks Granny for sharing all of your wonderful wisdom on the web and with the world.
