Word of Wisdom

Proverbs 24:30-32 God gives wisdom to those who take the time to consider what they see

Administrator 0 46 Article rating: 5.0

Everyone wants to be successful.  We all want life to be joyous, purposeful and fulfilling.  Unfortunately, most people never discover the secrets that lead to an abundant life. The information and the ability to apply it successfully come from God.  This proverb actually reveals the secret of acquiring wisdom!  "When I saw it, I considered it well...and received instruction".  When reading this proverb it is easy to overlook the principle of consideration. God gives us Instruction when we choose to "see" and carefully consider His word, works, and wonders.  This is why the Apostle Paul writes in Romans chapter 1 that the "invisible attributes" of God may be clearly seen and understood by the things which exist.  Our success is hidden in our willingness to see and consider that which is all around us.  Selah (means pause and think about it).

Proverbs 24:11-12 A lack of concern and care for those in need is dangerous

For several years I helped high school athletes attain scholarships and other aid for college.  By far, the most valuable information given to these young people had to do with character development.  This may seem strange, I always encouraged these athletes to find and help someone in need!  Not only does this help to produce self-esteem, but comes with many intangible benefits. Religious leaders in Jesus' day asked Him, "What is the greatest commandment?". Jesus' answer also included the second greatest commandment, "Love thy neighbor...".  When we refuse to consider and care for others, people may not notice it, BUT this proverb teaches us that God does.  This is good news for those who choose to help others in need and a warning for those who only pursue that which benefits themselves.
