People who have white hair are old and wise, I thought. Of course, as I approach, or am a part of this group, I’m not so sure. Reality set in and I must ask myself: so if I have white hair, am I wise? For that answer I must look to God’s Word and ask, “Where does wisdom come from,” and “Who am I in Christ”? Proverbs 2:6 says, “For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding,” and Job 28:28 says, “And unto man He said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.” Hum, scripture doesn’t say anything about how I should look, the color of my hair or how old I am. God says wisdom comes from reading His word and turning from evil. God gives the wisdom.
I do know this: I am a Child of the King, I am in Christ, and 1 John 5:20 says, “And we know that the Son of God is come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true, and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.” May I suggest that you look into the mirror…How wise are you?
