Hi Champ, it’s another exciting time to dig into God’s word. Let’s look at the benefits of having wisdom. There is a lot to learn from the wise king, Solomon.
It’s always exciting to read the book of Proverbs. Let’s learn something new today!
When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked; Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths: Proverbs 2:10-15 (KJV)
In our verses today, King Solomon identified for us one of the reasons we should be wise and have wisdom.
First of all, he identifies for us where wisdom should be located in our lives. The wise King says wisdom should be in our hearts.
This means that, beyond knowing what God’s words say, we should also put it in our hearts and live by God’s principles
He also tells us that knowledge should be pleasant to us. You know how you feel when mummy comes home with a bowl of ice cream? That’s how you should feel about knowledge!
What happens when we have wisdom in our hearts and knowledge is pleasant to us?
The Bible says;
1. Discretion will preserve you.
Do you know what Discretion is?
It is the ability to always think things through and act in the right way.
Everyone needs discretion in their lives, especially children of God like you and I.
This is because we should always seek to please God. If that’s our aim, then we have to carefully think through what we do, this is because our decisions matter at all time, and how we decide to do what we do matters as well.
To be continued…
Oh Lord, help me to be wise. Amen.
Read your Bible.
I am wise in all my ways.
