For the Lord gives wisdom. (Prov. 2:6)

Spring break is a big deal where I’m from. This time of year, everyone becomes fed up with being cooped up all winter. The cold and snow have lost their appeal, and we just want some warm sunshine. All winter long, we look forward to spring break. Plans are made. Beach condominiums are reserved. GPSs are loaded in the front of the minivan, while suitcases containing warm-weather gear are loaded in the back. The perfect vacation is something many seek every spring.

Seeking God’s wisdom is more important than seeking fun in the sun. As we seek God, he changes our desires and fills our minds with keys for living life eternally. He is our quintessential travel agent. But there is a catch. You and I have to seek God’s wisdom. He will give it if we ask, but we have to want it.

God’s wisdom will help you live an upright life. He will give you the ability to walk with integrity. With God, you will understand righteousness, justice, equity, and what good paths look like. The Spirit of the Lord will give you understanding that guards every decision you will ever make. His discretion will watch over you. Living a life surrendered to the Lord’s wisdom offers more benefits than all the sand on the world’s beaches.
