(Pro 24:32 KJV) Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction.
There are certain concepts that continue to elude me. Don’t bother getting me into a discussion of watts, amps and volts. I have made attempts to define and understand them. In spite of my questions and people giving me patient answers, electricity is one of the great mysteries of the universe to me. In my heart I am convinced that I could wrap my mind around it but for now I am satisfied by knowing that electricity can kill me and more watts makes for a brighter bulb.
Could I really understand it? I am convinced that I have not “considered” (reflected NASB) (7896/3820) on it enough. That means that I have refused to wrestle with the concepts and play with the wires for the required amount of time. It also could be that I don’t really need to know with the desperation that is required to focus.
So? I can live just knowing that electricity is dangerous. The subject of the context here is sloth. I cannot live a righteous or productive life without conquering laziness. Neither can you. I hope we all learn to apply this daily.
