Wise Up NIV Devotions for Mom's

Wise Up

Verse: Proverbs 24:3–4

Additional Scripture Readings:

Joshua 24:15

Proverbs 2:1–6

When we think of the wise, we might picture esteemed scholars padding through hallowed halls of learning. In their hushed offices and remote library stacks, they seem to have a monopoly on wisdom and understanding.

But where does wisdom really come from? How do moms like you and me wise up?

From living life well. Wisdom grows when moms and dads make careful choices about their priorities and the amount of time they spend with their children. It arises when arguments are settled with sane solutions and siblings are coaxed to peace. It develops when families work together to squeeze extras from meager incomes. It blossoms when celebrations mark special achievements. Most of all, wisdom comes from living all of life’s days with an attitude of desiring and working toward God’s best in our families.

Wisdom doesn’t necessarily come from hallowed halls of learning. Sure, learned folks are smart enough. But the truly wise are those who learn to live life well, day in and day out.

This devotion is from the NIV Mom's Devotional Bible by Zondervan. Used with permission.
