We live in a dangerous world.  The explosion of technology has given us access to worldwide atrocities, moments after they occur.  Images of the viciousness and hatred within the hearts of men are literally in our pocket!  The impact on our society is borne out in high rates of suicide and mental disorder.  Where can we find peace and courage to deal with the world in which we live?  The answer is the Word of God.  We have to choose to READ and LISTEN to it.  Only then will we obtain the reward!

Proverbs 29:18 Rejecting God's word results in chaos. Understanding God's word produces peace.

A number of years ago in America, a movement was started to remove God and His word from the public square.  Effort was made to take prayer out of schools, remove the Ten Commandments from courthouses and censor political speech of pastors.  The results have been catastrophic as people are "casting off restrain".  Our "culture war" has fundamentally changed America for the worse.  Violence, vicious crime and low regard for human life are the offspring of rejecting wisdom.  Everyone is searching for "happiness", but they are looking in the wrong places.  Peace and self-control is the reward of one who discovers and understands God's word (Matthew 11:28-29).

Proverbs 1:24-27a God does not help those who refuse to hear wisdom.

Trouble comes to all of us.  There are times when our money, our family, our relationships,, our education, nor our personal abilities can rescue us.  We need a miracle.  We need God.  It is very dangerous to wait until you need a miracle to call on God.  Why?  You run the risk of being ignored!  If you have repeatedly refused to respond to words of wisdom, there is no guarantee of help when trouble comes.  In Romans 1:18, the issue is described as " ...suppressing the truth in unrighteousness".  In other words, many choose to push Gods word aside and pursue their own way.  God desires to help us and change our hearts.  However, we have to choose to HEAR His wisdom before it is too late.  The secret to ensuring that God will help us in times of need is found in Isaiah55:6, "Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near."  This admonition comes with an unbreakable promise, "And He will have mercy on him;".  Jesus died so that help in the time of need would never be an issue for us!  Read Hebrews 4:15-16.

Proverbs 1:22-23 God gives His Spiirit to those who respond to His word.

We are all children of God.  This dangerous lie causes some people to feel safe because they believe that they are pretty "good" people. God calls this, "naivete".  If we were all God's children, Jesus would not have called the leaders of His day,  "...sons of the devil", in John 8:44.   Unfortunately,  despite the "good" things that we may do, there is a problem.  Our goodness is just not good enough.  Romans3:10 declares that "...there is none good, no not one..." and that all of us have sinned and fall short" of God's requirement.  However. today's word of wisdom gives us hope.  We can become children of God.  Here is the promise; if we will hear God's Word and TURN at His rebuke, He will give us His Spirit!  It is His Spirit living IN us that seals us as children of God!  Romans8:9 says, "...Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His ".  Jesus died so that we could become children of God.   The good news is that if you are in the wrong family, you can become a child of God today!

Proverbs 22:17-19 Wisdom comes when we listen to, consider, cherish,and speak truth.

Many people believe that wisdom is all about how much you know.  However, this definition is not complete.  Wisdom comes from a Hebrew word that means "Skill".  Wisdom is the ability to skilfully use knowledge to produce beneficial outcomes.  Proverbs 22 instructs us on HOW to acquire this power.  1) Listen carefilly to the words of the wise, 2) Take the time to carefully consider this information, 3) Commit these truths to memory and give voice to them, and 4) Submit what you do to what you have learned.  God will empower you and work on your behalf as you trust Him. We must subnit to the process to attain wisdom and the blessings that come with it.
