What does it mean to pursue wisdom




Wisdom is a precious commodity, like a fine wine that gets better with age. But unlike a bottle of wine, you can't just pop open a can of wisdom and chug it down. No, the pursuit of wisdom is a lifelong journey, one that requires patience, perseverance, and a healthy dose of humor.


According to the Bible, wisdom is one of the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, along with knowledge, understanding, counsel, fortitude, piety, and fear of the Lord. In Proverbs, wisdom is personified as a woman who calls out to all who will listen, offering guidance and instruction. She says, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding" (Proverbs 9:10).


Secular sources also recognize the importance of wisdom. The ancient Greek philosopher Socrates believed that wisdom was the most important thing a person could possess. He said, "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." This statement might sound a bit paradoxical, but it's actually quite profound. It means that true wisdom comes from recognizing how much we don't know and being open to learning and growing.


In today's fast-paced world, it can be easy to get caught up in the pursuit of material things and forget about the pursuit of wisdom. But as the old saying goes, "You can't take it with you." So, if you're looking to invest in something that will truly pay off in the long run, wisdom is a pretty solid choice.


But let's be real, the pursuit of wisdom can sometimes feel like a never-ending game of Whack-a-Mole. Just when you think you've got a handle on one thing, another issue pops up. But don't give up! As the wise philosopher Yoda once said, "Patience you must have, my young Padawan."


And remember, the pursuit of wisdom doesn't have to be all serious and stuffy. In fact, sometimes a good laugh is just what you need to lighten the load and put things in perspective. As the wise philosopher Homer Simpson once said, "Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it."


In conclusion, whether you look to the Bible or secular sources, the pursuit of wisdom is a noble and worthwhile endeavor. It may not be easy, but it's definitely worth it. And don't forget to have a sense of humor about it all. After all, as the wise philosopher Dory from Finding Nemo once said, "Just keep swimming."
