Focus ~ On Wisdom

This morning I decided to go back and read through Proverbs 1 ~ 15 once again, and see which verses jumped out at me from each chapter.  I think it is always good to review the material while it is still fresh in your mind.

23 Come and listen to my counsel.
I’ll share my heart with you
    and make you wise. Proverbs 1:23

2 Tune your ears to wisdom,
    and concentrate on understanding.
3 Cry out for insight,
    and ask for understanding. Proverbs 2:2-3


7 Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom.
    Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.
8 Then you will have healing for your body
    and strength for your bones. Proverbs 3:7-8


5 Get wisdom; develop good judgment.
    Don’t forget my words or turn away from them.
6 Don’t turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you.
    Love her, and she will guard you.
7 Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do!
    And whatever else you do, develop good judgment.
8 If you prize wisdom, she will make you great.
    Embrace her, and she will honor you. Proverbs 4:5-8



1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom;
    listen carefully to my wise counsel.
2 Then you will show discernment,
    and your lips will express what you’ve learned. Proverbs 5:1-2


20 My son, obey your father’s commands,
    and don’t neglect your mother’s instruction.
21 Keep their words always in your heart.
    Tie them around your neck.
22 When you walk, their counsel will lead you.
    When you sleep, they will protect you.
    When you wake up, they will advise you.
23 For their command is a lamp
    and their instruction a light;
their corrective discipline
    is the way to life. Proverbs 6:20-23


4 Love wisdom like a sister;
    make insight a beloved member of your family. Proverbs 7:4


12 “I, Wisdom, live together with good judgment.
    I know where to discover knowledge and discernment.
13 All who fear the Lord will hate evil.
    Therefore, I hate pride and arrogance,
    corruption and perverse speech.
14 Common sense and success belong to me.
    Insight and strength are mine. Proverbs 8:12-14


10 Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom.
    Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment.

11 Wisdom will multiply your days
    and add years to your life.
12 If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit.
    If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer. Proverbs 9:10-12


31 The mouth of the godly person gives wise advice,
    but the tongue that deceives will be cut off. Proverbs 10:31

30 The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life;
    a wise person wins friends. Proverbs 11:30


18 Some people make cutting remarks,
    but the words of the wise bring healing. Proverbs 12:18


14 The instruction of the wise is like a life-giving fountain;
    those who accept it avoid the snares of death. Proverbs 13:14


33 Wisdom is enshrined in an understanding heart;
    wisdom is not found among fools. Proverbs 14:33


31 If you listen to constructive criticism,
    you will be at home among the wise.

32 If you reject discipline, you only harm yourself;
    but if you listen to correction, you grow in understanding.

33 Fear of the Lord teaches wisdom;
    humility precedes honor. Proverbs 15:31-33



I believe it is very important to God for us to gain wisdom!!!  So I am going to be focusing on God’s wisdom as I go through my day today.  I pray that this review of the first 15 chapters of Proverbs inspires you to get out your Bible and seek His wisdom too.


  1. This year I’m taking a “wisdom challenge.” I’m reading one chapter of the Proverbs every day. That means I will read the book 12 times this year. I feel I can’t get enough of God’s wisdom. Thanks for sharing the verses that popped out at you. They mean a lot to me too.

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
