Today’s Reading: Isaiah 45:11‐ 48:11, Ephesians 4:1‐16, Psalm 68:19‐35, Proverbs 24:3‐4
Context: The fear (humble reverence) of the Lords is the beginning and the end of wisdom. Proverbs are principles and not promises.
Proverbs 24:3-4 – By wisdom a house is built,
and by understanding it is established;
by knowledge the rooms are filled
with all precious and pleasant riches.
- Wisdom, understanding and knowledge
- Build, establish and fill a house
It is easy to be deceived by the world into thinking that we should focus on temporal things as we lead our families. Rebecca and I wrote these verses on the slab of our home as we were building. We have prayed them over our home multiple times. A friend of ours framed these verses and we hung them in our guest room. We pray that we will truly build our family on wisdom, understanding and knowledge.
Apply: I have been challenged to spend one hour a week, one day a month and one week a year in personal evaluation. I must make adjustments when I am not building my home on wisdom.
What are you building your house on?
