Introduction to Wisdom Series
Be wise and know whom you are listening to, not all are wearing pure and transparent clothing, and their outfit outside must also be the same inside. You have to take heed of your soul because it is the only composition that the devourer wants from us. Our body is a giveaway, and they do not want that. Therefore, we have to ask for the wisdom of God. God gives wisdom to the wise, as stated in Daniel 2.
