Wisdom is Not Just for Us


When with humility, trust, and curiosity you seek wisdom, your life becomes a rich blessing to those you lead. 


After the Queen of Sheba came to visit Solomon, she included these comments in her report: “How happy your people must be! How happy your officials, who continually stand before you and hear your wisdom!” (2 Chronicles 9:7) When you perform your job with wisdom, most of the people around you will be happy, for you will be radiating God’s grace, peace, and love. 


Your wisdom even brings a blessing to leaders around you who are jealous of you. Jealousy is their choice, for God is freely willing to offer them wisdom if they choose to put their trust in the saving work of his Son, Jesus.
