7 Wisdom is the principal thing;
Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding.
8 Exalt her, and she will promote you;
She will bring you honor, when you embrace her. Proverbs 4:7-8
Our desire should be wisdom and understanding from the Lord. This comes through seeking the Lord and simply asking Him. When the Lord came to Solomon, he told Solomon he could ask Him for anything. But Solomon chose wisdom and because he chose wisdom, everything else was added to him.
Wisdom and understanding will aide us on a daily basis. We are daily presented with decisions and when those decisions are made with the wisdom of God, we will do all things with the focus on the Lord and His kingdom. Through the age of humanity the Lord has raised up and elevated His servants.
The purpose of our lives upon this earth is to bring glory and honor to the Lord. When we bring glory and honor to the Lord we point people to Him. This happens as we live each day walking in the wisdom and understanding of the Lord. His wisdom and understanding fills our lives when the focus and priority of our lives is His word and prayer. It is through simply seeking and drawing near that our lives are filled with His wisdom and understanding.
