"Who is wise? Let them realize these things. Who is discerning? Let them understand. The ways of the Lord are right; the righteous walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them" - Hosea 14:9.
The prophet Hosea reiterated what other prophets and wisdom writers had written and said: True wisdom is to know and walk in the fear of the Lord and the ways of God. God's ways work, for He is committed to be personally involved in any process or relationship dedicated and committed to do His will, regardless of what it will cost them. That does not mean the righteous (including leaders) won't be tested or even experience outcomes that in the short run do not work out for their personal gain or benefit. Yet wise leaders walk in God's will because it is the right thing to do and not because it always works out to their advantage.
LEADERSHIP STEP: Your Step today is to once again review and study wisdom where it is mostly found in the Bible and that is the book of Proverbs. Go to the Bible Gateway site and enter a search for the words wise or wisdom and look over the lists (there are many references). Choose three verses to reflect on today, and then choose three more every day this week. Jot down in your journal your insights into wisdom and how you can apply it to your current situation.
