I love inspirational poetry and quotes but there inspirational Bible verses, in my opinion, are the foundation that the best poems are built on. Some of my favorites are about God's wisdom. Wisdom is not a word that gets the credit it deserves. Somehow over the years it sounds like something pertaining to elderly people and we all know how age-phobic Americans are these days.

When a family member wants to share wisdom with the young people, you can practically see them become fearful of their mortality. However, after seeing reports of people trampled on Black Friday in their urgency to get at some gadget that will be cast aside and filling up our country’s already overflowing landfills a few week’s after the New Year’s holiday I felt we could use an update on making good decisions.

The Bible advises us to not turn our backs on wisdom. It states that this sacred knowledge is not only crucial to our well being but worth everything that we have if that is what it takes to get it. Yet we ignore, avoid and even make fun of those who offer inspirational Bible verses and wisdom to us at little or no cost.

Proverbs 4:6-7,

"Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding."

People of today desperately need to return to a respect of common sense or wisdom. We are guilty of allowing ourselves of being far too impressed and influenced by the bad behavior and teachings of television and movies and too little by the wisdom offered to us in the Scripture and by older more experienced people who have made mistakes and lived to tell the tale.
