(Proverbs 4:1 KJV) Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.
“I don’t understand” is a common statement. It gave birth to the statement, “What part of ‘No’ don’t you understand?”
That is a key to my spiritual walk. There are legitimate and honest questions. There are things I don’t understand or have confused. The mysteries of the faith may require an eternity to begin to get a handle on. But this verse points out the keys to “understanding” (998).
Two verbs are shared: “Hear” (8085) and “attend” (give attention NASB) (7181). Ignore them at your own peril. God gives and is gracious. He is also holy and demanding.
So? Don’t play games. Pay attention in the class of life. Take hold of all that is offered and apply it. Why not start today?
