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.

“I Don’t Understand”

(Proverbs 4:7 KJV)  Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

How often have we heard someone say, “I don’t understand” when a point is so obvious?  How often have I sought “understanding” (998) of why people can be so blind to truth when they seem so intelligent?  In this verse we are looking at why so many people can have a college education and still be so simple.  Facts do not give you a grasp of the situation.  Wisdom does.

Without “wisdom” (2451) you are a babe in the woods.  Picture trying to put together a jig saw puzzle without the box cover to show you what the finished piece will look like.  Try doing it with the back side up even if you have the picture.  That is knowledge without wisdom.

So?  Seek wisdom.  That is only possible if you have a healthy fear of the Lord.
