In Scripture, wisdom is portrayed as a most important treasure, something to be sought after with consistent discipline. We, as Christians, tend to think of wisdom as something to be attained -- an ideal to which we aspire. Charles Stanley contends that genuine wisdom is evidenced in "how we live." The truly wise person is one whose values, perspectives, career goals, and daily decisions are all shaped by the wisdom found in Christ.
Choosing to live according to Biblical precepts is a lifestyle foreign to the worldly patterns among which we live. Inevitably, there will be clashes between the wisdom of God and that of the world. Dr. Stanley teaches how to apply God's wisdom as we handle finances, relate to others, care for our physical health, and carry out day-to-day duties. This significant volume presents a way of living that embodies wisdom from above.
