Eyes On Wisdom

Eyes on Wisdom Sermon Illustration

When we are walking or driving, we tend to drift in the direction we are looking. We get distracted by the latest fashions, the newest gadgets, or the latest TV shows. All of them demand our time, money, and attention. They look fulfilling or helpful, but many of them are designed to last only a season. The writer of Proverbs reminds us that wisdom transcends the superficial (Proverbs 31:30). When we pursue wisdom the way we would pursue a romantic relationship, wisdom will captivate us. The more deeply we study wisdom, the more attractive wisdom becomes to us, and the easier it becomes to make wise choices.
