Wisdom & Breadth of Mind

"And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and breadth of mind like the sand on the seashore, so that Solomon’s wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all . . ." (1 Kings 4:29-30)

-knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action
-keen perception, sound judgement
-discernment-acute judgement and insight
-insight-seeing into inner character or underlying truth

-freedom from narrowness or restraint

God is the giver of every good gift (James 1:17). HE gives wisdom and understanding. Remember Proverbs 3:7? “Be not wise in your own eyes” . . . I’m asking the LORD to fill me with wisdom (His wisdom) and breadth of mind like He did with Solomon. Oh how I want to be wise and open-minded to things of the LORD!
