Walk in Wisdom January 10, 2021
I. What is the Source of Wisdom? – Romans 16:27; Daniel 2:20–22
II. What is the Definition of Wisdom?
God’s wisdom is defined as His doing the best thing, in the best way, at the best time, for the best purpose.
III. What is the Application of This Wisdom? – Colossians 4:5–6
A. Walk in Wisdom
To be “wise as serpents” means to maneuver quietly with caution and intelligence; to maneuver with a planned strategy; to be quick in seeing danger and quick to escape from it. It means to be a person of vision and initiative, knowing one’s resources, knowing when to strike and when to withdraw. It means seizing the moment when the opportunity arises to present the message, withdrawing quickly when danger threatens.
The believer is also to be like a dove: to be as gentle and harmless as a dove; to cause no damage; to be known as a symbol of peace; to be as pure, unmixed, and unadulterated as doves. (Matthew: Chapters 8–13, vol. 2, The Teacher’s Outline & Study Bible, 134)
B. Redeem the Time – Ephesians 5:15–17
“because the days are evil,” or afflicting and abounding in troubles and persecutions. (Zodhiates, The Complete Word Study Dictionary: New Testament).
C. Speak the Truth
1. With Grace Always
always with grace = to show kindness to someone, with the implication of graciousness on the part of the one showing such kindness (GELNT, 1)
2. With Salt Seasoned
seasoned... with salt. Salt is a preservative that retards spoilage. Our speech should be tempered so as never to be insipid, corrupt, or obscene.
seasoned with salt = appropriate and proper words
3. With Discernment
answer = to discern, judge. To answer or return [an] answer which ought to be done with discretion (Zodhiates, The Complete Word Study Dictionary: NT)
