Proverbs Challenge, Day 24


Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches

Throughout our Proverbs Challenge we have been seeing the importance of wisdom.  We are exhorted to seek after wisdom and to seek to gain knowledge.  Today I see another fundamental building block of abundant living:  understanding.  Wisdom comes from the Lord and enables us to rightly apply knowledge.  Understanding is a kind of enlightenment that allows us to grasp the import and meaning of things.  Knowledge is the accumulation of factual data.  The three of these together provide a firm foundation for life, and equip us to experience abundant life in Christ.
