Get Knowledge, Get Understanding

KEY VERSE: “He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit” (Proverbs 17:27).
It was not a coincidence that one of the first acts of young Solomon as the King of Israel was to ask God to give him the blessing of understanding to enable him rule God’s people. We should also not see it as happenstance that only a few verses after God granted Solomon’s request, the king applied his new-found weapon to judge two feuding harlots. The two cases were planned by God to underscore the strategic role of knowledge, wisdom and understanding in human affairs.
In the passage today, God distills for us the rules of knowledge, wisdom and understanding. We pay attention to these for our own good and for the lengthening of our days here on earth. No better way than to list the lesson God has for us today. Practice equity in all matters, never justify the wicked nor condemn the just. Be ready to pay the full price to get wisdom, it will preserve your life. Let your love for others be constant in times of joy and adversity. Do not be a surety to a stranger, preserve your life. Live at peace with all men and be humble. Do not give or receive bribe, God hates it. Avoid foolish behaviour and lifestyle, so you do not bring sorrow to all that love you. Control your tongue!
Paul, the apostle desired “That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man. That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye , being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breath, and length, and depth, and height, and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.”
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You are aimless in life if you lack wisdom.
