Slugging it out

Cry out for insight,
and ask for understanding.
Search for them as you would for silver;
seek them like hidden treasures.  Prov. 2:3-4

Insight and understanding are to be sought, not consumed. We can be spoon-fed information but to really grasp the spiritual, emotional, social, intellectual, or political ramifications of information we need wisdom. Sometimes God sends flashes of genius and sudden enlightenment but a good deal of the time wisdom comes by seeking wise council, praying for answers, and slugging it out internally.

Lord, give me wisdom to deal with all that I know and think I know.
