Wisdom is useless unless I act on it. Wisdom is about knowing, understanding and doing.
Acting on wisdom leads to living well. This is in reference to a full life, not wealth or riches. It foretells Jesus letting us know that “A thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.” (John 10:10)
Dear friend, do what I tell you; treasure my careful instructions. Do what I say and you’ll live well. My teaching is as precious as your eyesight — guard it! | Proverbs 7:1-3 (The Message Bible)
Being able to see is very important to me. I wear goggles sometimes to protect my eyes. I guard them. I want to be able to see. Seeing the way of wisdom is a huge deal. Jesus is the way to TRUTH which leads to life. Now that is some very good news.
I am come that they might have life, and … more abundantly — Not merely to preserve but impart LIFE, and communicate it in rich and unfailing exuberance.
What a claim! Yet it is only an echo of all His teaching; and He who uttered these and like words must be either a blasphemer, all worthy of the death He died, or “God with us” — there can be no middle course.
