The True Treasure of Godly Wisdom

January 23, 2022 | Perry Kallis

Passage: James 3:13-18

His name is Warren Buffett and he is 91 years old. He is one of the world’s 10 richest men whose wise investing strategies have given him a net worth valued at over $116 billion dollars. Each year, eBay auctions an opportunity to have lunch with Warren Buffett just to glean some of his investing wisdom. The most recent lucky bidder won with a bid of over $4.5 million dollars! That’s a great deal of money just to have lunch with someone in order to get their opinion. But in truth, all of us will pay a great deal more than money to choose where we get life’s wisdom. Connecting to that kind of wisdom will cost us our eternal destinies. Most people will choose selfish motivations to get their wisdom, including worldly philosophies and perspectives.
 
The book of James indicates that there is only one source for wisdom that leads to godly purpose and eternal hope. “Wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.” (James 3:17) The one source of true wisdom comes only from our Creator: Almighty God. In our passage for this week, we will look at the power and importance of seeking the treasure of God’s wisdom, which gives us more than just a mere “lunch with God” It can give us “eternal life with God”.
