Proverbs Challenge, Day 4


Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom.

  And in all your getting, get understanding.”

Proverbs 4:7 sets a very simple challenge before us:  get wisdom and understanding above all else.  Wisdom can be thought of as the collection of learned facts or knowledge.  Understanding can then be thought of as the skill to apply wisdom in the right way.  When we think about this in relation to the fear of the Lord being the beginning of knowledge, focusing our efforts first on seeking and knowing the Lord leads us to wisdom.  Then, as we grow in our relationship with the Father, He guides us to employ that wisdom by following His guidance in life (understanding).  How simple is that?  Yet the promised benefits are so wonderful we cannot afford to not get this right!  Wisdom is essential, so pursue it earnestly; and with all your power, go after understanding!!
