I am sure we call can use wisdom for the bible declares "get wisdom and in all your getting, get understanding." Wisdom is indeed the principal thing!
I believe we have come to the place and time in life where we must realize that if the families, marriages, parent/children relationships, etc will succeed in the way in which God would have our relationships to be is that we MUST operate in the wisdom of God.
We can no longer depend on human wisdom. Human wisdom has too many flaws.We have to go to the only source of pure wisdom and that is God.
Jeremiah 32:17 "Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you. Isaiah 59:1 Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear.
Godly wisdom is possible and is given to all who ask God for it.
James 1:5- If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
The key to divine wisdom is "asking by faith and not doubting" that God can and will do just what He says.
Faith is believing without seeing. Hebrews 11:1-Faith makes us sure of what we hope for and gives us proof of what we cannot see.
Hebrews 11:6-And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Jesus gave a parable about 2 houses being built, one by a wise builder and one by a foolish builder. Let's listen to Matthew 7:24-27 Whoever hears these sayings of Mine and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on a rock. 25 And the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house. And it did not fall, for it was founded a rock. 26 And every one who hears these sayings of Mine and does not do them will be likened to a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house. And it fell. And its fall was great.
