Acquire Wisdom

Season 17: Treasure in the Word

Scripture: Proverbs 4 & 5


The first step in acquiring wisdom is to make up your mind that you want it and will strive to obtain it (quote from Dr. Charles Ryrie). In other words, roll up your sleeves and put forth the effort to obtain it. Why? Because wisdom is valuable! It’s worth more than silver or gold. Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! 

The beginning of wisdom is: Acquire wisdom; and with all your acquiring, get understanding.

- Proverbs 4:7

One principle that helps in the study of Wisdom Literature is to examine the verbs that drive the commandments. Chapter 4 is an excellent example of this study tool with both positive and negative admonitions. Follow along as we walk through these verses in today’s lesson.
