There isn’t one of us in this world who isn’t longing or looking for wisdom and knowledge.Â We are wanting to know which decisions to make.Â We have questions of how to raise our kids.Â We contemplate how to have a successful marriage or even how to live a positive and fulfilling single life.Â We are wondering how we should spend our money and looking for the best investments.Â As we look through all of the many resources that are within our reach, one may realize that there are many voices in the world claiming that they know the way.Â They say that they can give us the keys to life and success.Â There are even those who claim to have accessed the fountain of youth. Yet there is only one whose claims have been proven many times over by people of countless generations. That one is Jesus.Â He is the Living Word of God and His words can give us life.Â It our choice whether or not we are going to listen to and apply that Word in our lives and reap the results of good seeds that have been planted.
Come, you children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
Who is the man who desires life,
And loves many days that he may see good?
Keep your tongue from evil,
And your lips from speaking deceit,
Depart from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Choosing to obey the word of God in my life is essential to my growth as an individual.Â It is also what will determine my true level of success and fulfillment in this life.Â I invite you to join me as I journey through Proverbs, the book of wisdom.Â Everyday for 31 days, we will read a chapter and look at ways of applying the word of God in our lives.
I am excited to take this journey!Â I hope you are too!
