when Solomon became king of Israel, he asked for wisdom to to rule over God’s people. Then God gave him money and power. He understood that wisdom was the only thing the he needed, especially God’s wisdom. In the book of James, it says, if we lack wisdom we can ask of God and He will give it freely. But what does it cost? Did you ever try to explain the wisdom of the gospel to a person who doesn’t want to hear? There is no amount of wisdom that will convince a person who hasn’t come to the end of himself and needs help. The heart of man is deceitful wicked above everything. It is unfortunate that man will not listen until he is trapped and persecuted. So what is the real cost of wisdom? It is our life. Until we surrender our life for God’s, there is no wisdom in us. A fool runs to wickedness and it is an abomination to the Lord. This is the real cost.
