There comes a time in everyone's life when a particular problem evolves into a crisis, much to the dismay of all involved. A crisis is usually comprised of issues that were ignored over an extended period of time. Insight indicates the crisis could have been avoided had the initial problem been taken seriously.
Samson’s reactions to his failed marriage resulted in just one in a series of crises he encountered as an adult. Wisdom for living was not a virtue that Samson seemed to have possessed. He relied on his physical strength to cope with problems that evolved into full-blown crises. Common sense and social skills were not available to him for managing problems.
God's word indicates that wisdom has a spiritual quality ingrained in its fiber as well as intellectual and moral components. Wisdom enables a person to view life’s issues from God’s perspective. Enlightened by the Holy Spirit, wisdom directs a person to select the most productive means for reaching solutions to problems of life.
I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, would give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so that you may know what is the hope of his calling, what is the wealth of his glorious inheritance.
~Ephesians 1:17-18 Christian Standard Bible
