Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 2:1-9. Solomon says to his son, “My son, accept my words, and hide my commandments in your heart. Listen to wisdom, apply your heart to understanding, cry after knowledge, and lift up your voice for understanding.”
Seek wisdom like you seek after money, and search for it like hidden treasures. Then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
The LORD gives wisdom: from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.
He lays up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a shield to those who live with integrity.
He keeps the paths of judgment, and guards the path of his faithful children.
Then you will understand righteousness, judgment, equity, and every good way.
There is a difference between knowledge and wisdom. We can have a lot of knowledge about a certain topic, but to say we have wisdom in that area we have to learn to understand and apply the knowledge that we have attained.
Wisdom and knowledge are something we have to seek after. It is not going to come knocking on our door.
Having a relationship with the LORD and spending time with Him, listening for His still small voice will help us to obtain wisdom.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;
2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.
9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.
Things to think about:
- What is the difference between wisdom and knowledge?
- Where do we get wisdom, knowledge, and understanding?
- What do we need to do to obtain wisdom, knowledge, and understanding?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this Scripture we see that we have to seek after wisdom and knowledge. Help us to seek Your face for the wisdom, knowledge and understanding that we need in this life. Help us to live with integrity and seek to do right in everything we do. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
