An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

A Baby Step for Wisdom

(Proverbs 24:3 KJV)  Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:

People want to be successful.  We want to feel like there is purpose and direction in our lives.  It may be expressed differently and have different priorities but I don’t think anyone wants to be a failure.  How do we achieve that goal?

You need to start with the right foundation.  If your base isn’t strong and stable then what you build will crumble and deteriorate.  “Wisdom” (2451) is a foundational rock, not a decorative device.  We get this wrong.  We tend to think that wisdom is something that suddenly appears when we are a certain age or have had a certain amount of experience.  Wrong.  It comes one stone at a time.  It is a conscious choice.  It must be sought.

So?  I spoke before about your WQ, Wisdom Quotient.  How is it doing?  Maybe it is time to start working on it.  You will live in some kind of house.  Make it a strong one.  Every day you put it off is a day longer to reach the goal.
