If an iron axhead is blunt and a workman does not sharpen its edge, he must exert a great deal of effort; so wisdom has the advantage of giving success. (Ecclesiastes 10:10 Net Bible)
In this microchip age, everyone seems to move in speed and often shipwreck in the name of experiential learning. This reflects greatly on what our society has evolved to be, whereas it was not so in the beginning. Gone are the days when people sought advice from elders; gone are the times that learning from other people’s experiences, pitfalls and success was paramount.
But the word of God has not changed; it is full of wisdom that can be drawn from, to live a purposeful kingdom life.
This book is birthed from over fourteen years of unlearning and learning what Godly wisdom is and how best applied to our day to day living.
Pastor Steve Munga of Perfecting Saints Family Church; would reiterate that the “core of wisdom comes from the ability to convert natural surroundings and happenings into spiritual lessons.”
It is totally agreed upon that this is what defined our lord Jesus ministry while on earth as outlined in the gospels. He was keen to observe everyday natural happenings and used it as spiritual lessons to teach the disciples.
We therefore can strongly define wisdom as practical intelligence. It is the application, the execution of correct comprehension or understanding of knowledge. It is purely an action word. If it’s not acted upon, then it ceases to be wisdom; hence it remains simply as information.
No man is an island. We all belong to circle of families and friends that add a sense of significance to our life’s existence. In essence, we are a summation of all those who have contributed to what we are and what we know; not forgetting the all essential paramount school of the Holy Spirit.
In this book, Apostle Christine endeavors to bring out simple, relevant nuggets centered on different spheres of life;- prayer, purpose, relationships, walk with God, money, business, leadership and ministry, etc. This is based on what the bible affirms as the wisdom of God.
These nuggets are practical guides and should act as reminders, cause one to pause and stop to think, while on the journey for purposeful living.
Join us in the discovery and be empowered. Amen!
