The apostle Matthew records the words of the Savior laying out the starting point for wisdom.

Matthew 7:24  [Jesus said] Anyone who listens to My teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.  (NLT)

Who is like our God?  He is the ultimate instructor!  Any measure of true wisdom must be based on His teaching.  Here the Savior sets forth the cardinal principle of life:  listen and follow Me, if you desire to be wise!

The credibility of your wisdom is it's durability.  You may have a ready mind and a will to work, but do you heed any word but your own?  If so, when the winds of adversity blow, your hard work may be destroyed!  Godly wisdom weathers the storms of life!  But don't stop there . . . transmitting the lessons we have learned to the next generation is vital.  We all stand on the shoulders of those who went before us!
