Seek Wisdom

If you seek wisdom over opportunity, opportunity will usually follow.

No matter where you look, there’s opportunity. It may not be knocking on your door, but all you have to do is drive around and you’ll see opportunity calling out from billboards, bus stops, and anything else big enough for a sign. Watch television and you will see more messages of opportunity. Surf the Internet and little banners will flash constantly: Get rich quick! Save money now!

Your problem isn’t opportunity. Opportunity is plentiful and cheap (and you usually get what you pay for). What you need is wisdom in order to sort through the opportunities. “Getting wisdom is the most important thing you can do!” wrote Solomon in Proverbs 4:7. Wisdom leads to good judgment, which enables you to make good decisions. And if you are able to make good decisions, you will have the ability to sort through the worthwhile opportunities that will come your way.

How wonderful to be wise, to be able to analyze and interpret things.
Ecclesiastes 8:1
