"If the ax is dull,

And one does not sharpen the edge,

Then he must use more strength;

But wisdom brings success."

Ecclesiastes 10:10 [NKJV]


To cut with a dull ax, or knife, takes much

more power and effort, than if it were sharpened.

So the wise thing to do is to sharpen it.


Wisdom helps us find better ways of doing things.

Simply stated, wisdom is the ability to make smart,

godly choices in life.


And how do we get this wisdom?

Nothing will better prepare us better to successfully

meet challenges than to draw near to God.

To draw near to Him and to discern more of His presence,

His love, and His power.

He will bless us and guide us.

There is no better way to ''sharpen our ax.''


"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;

A good understanding have all those who do His commandments.

His praise endures forever. "

Psalm 111:10 [NKJV]
