True Wisdom

Many of us have been placed in situations where we were undecided what we should do, and have spent much time in uncertanity. Yet there are exact rules by which we can arrive at correct decisions and have the positive assurance that we are being led aright.

To turn humbly to divine Mind for direction is the first step towards gaining true wisdom. This is illustrated in the experience of Solomon when he became king of Israel. When "the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee," in his humble prayer Solomon said: "I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in. ... Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad."

When one sees that wisdom belongs not to mortal mind, but to divine Mind, one rejects the belief of indecision, and turns to divine Mind for direction. Then, as one progresses in the understanding of Christian Science, he learns that perfect wisdom is expressed by the real man, because he is the reflection of the all-knowing Mind.
