Wisdom starts with God.

Sunday 1st of August, 2010

Today’s “Pearl of wisdom” is from Proverbs Chapter 1 verse 7.

“Start with God—the first step in learning is bowing down to God;
only fools thumb their noses at such wisdom and learning” (The Message).

Proverbs Chapter 1 sets the stage for all 31 chapters of this book in the Bible. Here in verse 7 we find the key theme for Proverbs, that is, that wisdom comes from knowing and loving God. “Bowing down to God” means that you love and revere Him and are committed to doing His will in your life. We have seen this personally in our own lives that by wholeheartedly loving God, wisdom blossoms. It’s not always easy and we have definitely made mistakes, but we know that learning to be wise is a journey that starts with loving God.

So with this in mind, where is God in your life? Have you given your life to Him? If you have, then we encourage you to continue getting to know Him. If you haven’t, why not take a moment and think about submitting your life to God, for He truly does love you.
