To grow in wisdom
According to the book of Proverbs in the Old Testament, wisdom is one of the greatest of all life’s possessions. An important component of wisdom is to have the skill to see things as they really are and not just as they appear to be. This ability is so important because as we move through various seasons of life, we are continually developing ideas that explain how life works. These diverse sets of ideas govern our thinking, telling us what the world is like and how we should live in it. Wisdom will enable a man to distinguish between those ideas in life that are true and those that are false.
