Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

No Success without Wisdom

I don't know of a hotter subject today than success. Magazine articles, books, seminars, and sermons promote it.

But success is seldom linked with wisdom. Chances are good that if we would pick up last Sunday's paper and read it through, we'd come across twenty or more references to success, yet find nothing added regarding wisdom.

In today's hype about success, wisdom is conspicuous by its absence. Outside of biblical literature and biblically based books, we hardly even come across the word . . . .

[Wisdom] may not give us great popularity and wealth and it may not mean that we will be the most respected in our field or that we will have the most significant voice in the company, but ultimately, as God gauges it, we will be successful.

Wisdom may not give us popularity or wealth but, as God gauges it, we’ll have success.
