Do you consider yourself to be wise? How would we know? Long ago, wise men were identified by their elaborate clothing/tunics, their abundant provisions, and their purposeful decisions. What, then, sets us apart today as Wise?
2 years ago, I posted some thoughts on "where your treasure is, there your heart will also be" and challenged us to be found as the Wise Men of old - Seeking, Worshipping, and Giving! As I now, revisit this idea that Wise Men Still Seek Him, I wonder - Do they?
When you consider the word "wise", who do you envision? I think of my Grandfather, and Pastors - men, who walk with Godly Character. I also connect wisdom to my husband, who faithfully seeks to lead our family according to the Word/Will of God! I think of Donald Trump and Bill Gates - men who have achieved great financial abundance; and I also consider women like Joyce Meyers and Marilyn Hickey whose passion for a God-Honoring life has positioned them among those of influence. A common characteristic among these and the countless other "Wise" people, is Purpose!! As an adjective, "Wise" is defined as follows: having or showing experience, knowledge, and good judgement. Wisdom, then is the quality or state of Being wise!
Likewise, let's also consider again what it means to "seek". The Greek define "seek" as pursuing a continued direction with determination. "Seek", then, is a verb - it requires action! Based on this information, it stands to reason that we would then desire to Be Wise in our Seeking!! Let's get real now, and identify who or what are we seeking? Are we seeking validation from our peers? Are we seeking financial riches regardless of the costs? Are we seeking love? Are we seeking peace? Perhaps, more importantly, are we wisely seeking?
The more I come to know and understand the nature of God (his DNA), the easier I can identify His Divine ability and desire to meet ALL of my needs according to His riches in Glory! Therefore, it is Wise to "Seek First the Kingdom of God and HIS righteousness" knowing that "ALL these things shall be added to us!" - Matthew 6:33 NKJV This is Amazing news!! I love the simplicity and power of this promise!!!
What then sets us apart today as Wise? Based on this information, Wise Men and Women Still Seek Him - thee One who Loves first!! I invite you to join us this year as we PURPOSE to BE Wise in SEEKING Him First!!
Love, The Baker Bunch
