“For the transgression of a land many are the princes thereof: but by a man of understanding and knowledge the state thereof shall be prolonged.”
When wickedness consumes a nation, chaos and turmoil abound; yet where there is Wisdom there is stability.
“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”
The children of Israel experienced a roller coaster of rulers. There were many that did not please the Lord, and a few that did. This chaos continued throughout the judges and kings.
In these Last Days, no matter their location, a Christian can attest to both of these verses in reference to the state of their country.
There was and is a need for Wisdom.
“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”
Whatever the problem, Wisdom is the answer.
We must begin with a fear of the Lord. There is no Wisdom without fear of Him.
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.”
Only Wisdom can provide the ability to overcome the sin of our flesh and the stability to the chaos of sin around us.
“And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.”
