Wisdom is a Choice

Wisdom is not an accident.  It is not the peculiar endowment of a select few.  It can be discovered, accumulated, cultivated, and appropriated.  But you need to care.  You need to pay attention.

It is a choice.

Wisdom requires awareness, devotion, effort, and focus.  You cannot age into wisdom, run into wisdom, or borrow it.  It is not a part-time job, a hobby, a serendipity, or recreation.

It is a way of life.

The fabric of life yields insights, but it requires interpretation.  It requires a lens.  One lens will dominate.

It is a way of seeing.

We can craft wisdom of our own making, or we can see the world through the eye of God.

Wisdom is a choice.
