Acquiring Wisdom
By: Rick Boxx
March 27, 2012

The comedian, Steve Martin, used to do a routine called, “How to Become a Millionaire.” It would begin by him saying “First, go get a million dollars!”

As I was studying about wisdom one morning, I had a similar feeling as when I first heard Steve Martin’s skit. Proverbs 4:7 told me, “The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight.”

Just as I wondered how I would get a million dollars, I also wondered how I would get wisdom. Fortunately, the Bible is full of ideas on acquiring wisdom.

One answer I’ve seen applied by many great, humble leaders is seeking feedback from those around you. If you keep asking “Why” enough times, you’ll gain wisdom and insight.
