When we begin to get closer to God, we learn that the focus of His wisdom is more about changing hearts than changing minds. I think about the countless hours I’ve spent with people—my clients, friends, children—using my best arguments to convince them to change. I think about all the times I’ve argued with MYSELF about the intellectual reasons for correcting or changing my own behavior. The fact is that God’s wisdom doesn’t target our mind as much as it targets our heart: “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.” (James 3:17) We only obtain GOD’S wisdom by spending time with HIM. What is the proportional time we spend seeking answers in books, television, YouTube videos, conferences, speeches and advise of men—verses simply seeking the pure wisdom of God? God’s wisdom places all our knowledge into His perspective. When we apply God’s wisdom to a situation then we are thinking like He does. For example, if someone has mistreated us, our wisdom may tell us to distance ourselves, retaliate, cover down and protect our heart—but God’s wisdom enlightens us to realize that their actions are really between them and God and His wisdom frees us to be merciful, kind, peaceable and gentle. God’s wisdom frees us to love with abandon. There is such freedom in loving fearlessly and when we begin to experience the knowledge of how much we are loved by God, He enables us to be free from being afraid to love. Love is the evidence of God’s wisdom in our lives.
