Is there someone in your life who represents wisdom to you? Take note of them and study what it is about them that makes you feel that way. For me it is a woman I befriended at church. Actually, I first met her at a bible study before I began attending my current church, and over the years we became very close. She has since gone to be with God.
She did not come off as an intellectual, rather she was just a friendly old gal that was fun to be with, and had many stories to tell. At 80-something, she was still quite self sufficient and independent.
I was quite naturally drawn to her when I needed advice on any number of subjects. When I attended a re-focus retreat some months ago, I came to realize what quality she had that made her represent wisdom to me. She was able to be brutally (I mean tear you apart brutally) honest, right in your face, yet with the gentleness of a summer breeze. No matter how harshly she corrected you, it always came from a place of love and respect. I hope I can be like her someday.
"May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer."
We, as a society, need to turn this one around. It rings of more truth than we should be capable of accepting.
