In all your getting….
“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” (Proverbs 4:7 KJV)
I love to “get”
Get new knowledge.
Get new stuff (especially books and gadgets).
Get fresh insights and get ahead in life and business.
Get likes and shares and hearts and whatever other social affirmations I can muster.
I’m a classic shiny object lover, prone to the latest trends (especially in courses that teach business principles, ways to extend my influence and help more people, and ways to make money online).
In short I’m an expert “getter”!
But there’s a pearl of wisdom here nestled in the Scriptures that serves to temper my addiction.
But in all your getting, get…
Wisdom takes what it learns, what it acquires and transforms acquisition into application.
In all your getting…
Understanding turns philosophy into practice, moving ideas into action, and puts practical hands to realize what previously existed only in the heart.
Wisdom and understanding will equip you to succeed.
We live in a society and culture obsessed with consumption.
Wisdom understands the balance between consumption and creation.
You were made to be a maker. You are called to create. To add something to the table for others to enjoy and be equipped by.
Don’t fall for the lie that you are condemned to a life where others are destined to get all of the things you dream about, while you stand on the sidelines.
Grasp this fundamental truth, getting what you want begins with giving others what they want and need.
Larna and I have applied this in our business over the past 5 years and experienced remarkable results. Every day we are looking for ways to add value to the marketplace and share worth from our lives and experience with others so they can rise and do the same.
