Teenagers growing up in this dark corrupt world often face many pressures in dealing with those who do evil. Many of their friends make wrong choices, do wrong things and there are times when they are tempted to do something that is incorrect or to follow the “wrong path in life.” However, if you focus on God’s wisdom which teaches you to reverence God’s love and obey His Word and not go the wrong way then the ungodly temptations of life will not defeat you. I’m Pastor Demetria Bass of the River Christian Center and that’s your WOW (Word of Wisdom).
Proverbs 10:21 says, the lips of the righteous feed many but fools die for want of wisdom. That same verse in the Moffatt translation reads, but a fool’s lack of sense is death to himself. Today, many people lack common sense and it causes them much grief. They lack the sense to make proper, clear and correct choices. Are you thinking about the decisions you make? Do you ask yourself if you are using common sense? While this may seem so obvious, it is clear that many lack this basic attribute. It’s wise to use common sense before you leap!

The dictionary defines wisdom as “the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting.” This is a theme that’s recurring throughout the Bible. Knowledge, on the other hand, is defined as having information through experience, reasoning or acquaintance. God wants us to have knowledge of Him but equally important is having wisdom which is a gift from God. James 1:5 says, “But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.” Wisdom is what God will bless us with in order for us to glorify Him with the knowledge we have of Him.
