Wisdom is Pleasure
Wisdom is pleasure to a man of understanding.
Doing wrong is like a joke to a fool, but wisdom is pleasure to a man of understanding.
All the glory, praises and honor be to the Holy Father in Jesus’ precious name !
I give thanks to the Almighty God for the word of wisdom from the Book of Proverbs. It is important to note that the word ‘wrong’ is replaced by words ‘evil’ and ‘wickedness’ in NKJV and AMP translations respectively. Therefore, it can be simple wrong doings to a great evil and wicked works of a foolish person. As the subject verse says, indeed it could be joke to a foolish person to do evil. Even it may be natural to him to sin and laugh away when convicted. As the following verse say, the foolish even mock the acceptance of their guilt. But the upright readily accept their sins and seek for reconciliation with God.
Fools mock at the guilt offering, but the upright enjoy acceptance.Proverbs 14:9 NLT
The Bible says, wisdom is more precious than rubies and nothing we desire can compare with it. And It is very much true. For the Lord gives wisdom and from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding also. It is true that everybody has wisdom, but the wisdom that comes from God makes the difference. The following verse puts before us the richness of wisdom that comes from heaven. It is pure, peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.James 3:17 NIV
Brethren, wisdom is indeed a pleasure to a man of understanding. In particular, a child of God shall take pleasure in the godly wisdom. All his actions and thoughts are directed towards the exaltation of the Omnipotent God. Therefore, let all our actions also match the given wisdom of God and bring glory to His name.
In Jesus’ precious and matchless name be blessed. Amen.
