We've only one life to live and what we can do with that life can be paramount. When we come to the end, we don't want to wish things had been a bit different. God has given us all so much, but the things we hold in our hands aren't really ours at all. We must have the wisdom to know what to do with God's things. God is wise in all He has ever done and He wants us to also be wise. Wisdom is seeing life from God's perspective and obeying God's word. Wisdom starts with Christ. He is wisdom to us and to be more like Christ, we must take God's word and apply it in our lives.
"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." James 1:5
