In commenting on Proverbs 4:5 I was reminded of this verse. The verse in Provers reads:
(Proverbs 4:5 KJV) Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.One of the keys to a redemptive spiritual life is priorities. What is it that you “seek” (2212) with the greatest intensity? This target could focus on being accepted, not being embarrassed, getting rich, looking good, or almost anything. But what do you really have if you succeed?
For those who consider themselves followers of Jesus our first priority in daily life is to seek His kingdom and His righteousness. As Proverbs tells us, that is done through wisdom and understanding of his word.
Another example of the OT and NT working together.
