“Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her. She will place on your head an ornament of grace; A crown of glory she will deliver to you.”
-After being crowned king, king Solomon realized that he was deficient in many things; even though he only asked for wisdom; which pleased the Lord. Wisdom is the application of knowledge & understanding all of which are available gifts given by the Holy Spirit according to His will. In his final remarks through the book of Ecclesiastes 12:13; king Solomon tells us that our duty on earth are to fear of the Lord & keeping His commandments; through which God drives His kingdom agenda in us, for us & by us. Wisdom, humility & the fear of the Lord find an equilibrium in Jesus’ law of love. Like in the Olympics where those who win get a reward, we are called to strive for wisdom which will reward us with promotions, honor, grace & it becomes our crown of glory through Christ Jesus. Let us always remember that wisdom is the principal thing & ask for it, & in all our getting, let us get understanding.
You alone are holy & true Lord; receive all the glory & praise. You have said in Your word that those who lack wisdom, let them ask from You; we humbly ask You for wisdom merciful God. Only You have the authority to reward those who diligently seek You Lord; have mercy on us. Journey with us Jesus in all things & expand our capacities so that we may be able to receive all that You have promised us & always act according to Your will. Guide us every day Father in Your wisdom & help us to always desire the imperishable crown so that we may endure with You in glory now & forever. Amen
