Proverbs 2:6

Man with finger pointing to head
Proverbs 2:6 – “For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding;”

How smart are you?

We use measures such as IQ test to give us numbers, which are less than useless.

Or we use reputations. But some are not as smart and have had good advice from others..

But then…there are those who demonstrate it.

It is an old woman showed.

Kalidasa lived in 5th century and was a classical Sanskrit author

Kalidasa was traveling in the country and felt thirsty. He saw a woman pulling water from a pond and asked for water. Since she did not know the stranger, she asked for an introduction.

Kalidasa was mused at her ignorance and felt that she does not know his caliber.

He simply said ‘I am a traveler’

The woman said ‘There are only two travelers in this world. One is Sun and another is moon. They rise every day and also set down each other’

Kalidasa said ‘Okay, then I am a visitor’

The woman said there are only two type of visitors. One is youth and another is wealth. Both are not permanent. Hence they are known to be visitors.

Amazed at her skills, Kalidasa said ‘Okay, I am very patient man, let us keep it like that’

Woman said, there are only two patient things. One is earth and another is the tree. Earth takes all the endless excavations and mis-use of resources. The tree gives back the fruit who throws stone at them.

Kalidasa said, let me be the adamant man.

Woman said, there are only two things that are adamant. One is nail and another hair. The keep growing in-spite of trimming them often.

Kalidasa said, I am an idiot now then

The woman laughed and said, ‘There are two idiots. The king or the leader who has neither knowledge or skills. The other one is the ministers who keep praising him’

Solomon knew wisdom. And he knew where it came from.

The Lord grants wisdom.

But he also advised “Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.” (Proverbs 13:20, ESV)

In your life, take the time to cultivate what brings wisdom. It rewards more than gold.
