WISDOM’S CHILDREN BY BISHOP DAG HEWARD-MILLS
7th April 2019
READ: 2 Chronicles 9:1-12
“…But wisdom is justified of her children.” – Matthew 11:19
When someone is wise he brings forth a certain kind of fruit. These fruits or products are what we call the children of wisdom. Do you have these products in your life?
If you do not have these children in your life, then perhaps you are not wise. King Solomon sought after wisdom and he described the result of having wisdom in his life (Ecclesiastes 2:4-8). As a result of wisdom, Solomon built houses, farms, gardens, and swimming pools. He had servants and maidens, great possessions, gold and silver. He was involved in development, and he produced greatness (Chronicles 2:1,5,9).
Wisdom brought Solomon promotion, and God’s favour. “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall PROMOTE thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her” (Proverbs 4:7,8).
“Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain FAVOUR of the LORD” (Proverbs 8:34,35).
When you go through this list of the children of wisdom, you will realize that being wise is better than being foolish. This is how to tell whether someone is wise—look for the children of wisdom. The Queen of Sheba heard of Solomon’s fame, but she only believed when she saw the children of wisdom!
