How do we know if our decisions are wise ones?
Pastor Bob Merritt has found that the best way to get it right is to cultivate godly wisdom. In Get Wise, he takes God's best wisdom as found in the book of Proverbs and applies it to the top decisions we all have to make--decisions about education, work, family, friends, sex, parenting, money, and more. Topic by topic, he shows you how to make choices that result in long-term benefits in the most important areas of life.
